Keeping You Hanging - No Posts of the Week

Sorry, folks. I'm going to have to pass on the Posts of the Week again this time. Yesterday, I decided to head to Frank's for a few days, kind of at the last minute. I remembered to grab a few photos onto my flash drive but forgot all about the oollected POTW links. On the plus side, this means that I should have more than usual for you next time.

I hate to lure you over here and then offer you nothing at all, so in keeping with the previous cottage post, I've included a couple of images taken on an overcast day.

I'm not sure if I'm the only one amused by an empty clothesline but for what it's worth, I snapped a couple of shots of the idle clothespins, and one more on a different evening when the clothesline was respectfully employed. I hope you like them.


I should have a regular post for you tomorrow.

A swirl of empty clothespins adorn the otherwise naked line. All but two are in a colourful, windy blur.




clothespins7
It's kind of silly how they so often catch my eye but they do. I have posted images of empty clothespins before, and even turned one of those images into the current icon for the Posts of the Week.

Towels and clothes spent another day drying on the line. They may have still been hanging there when the sunset was done.

is not honest.

The clothespins make me think of colourful birds sitting on a clothesline. And shots of laundry are always so homey. Clothes drying at sunset put a different spin on the subject of laundry.

Sorry for the fragment 'is not honest' that obviously remained on my clipboard and had nothing to do with you or your blog!!!!!

Seeing clothes drying on a clothesline reminded me of home (France)...Funny how the mind works, I had forgotten we used to dry clothes this way.
I love the idle clothespins :-)

blueviolet said...

The prettiest clothesline shot I have ever seen!

Pauline said...

no need to apologize, either for the lack of POTW or empty clothes pins - it's good to occasionally look at objects in their repose ;)

Barbara Shallue said...

Enjoy yourself! Now I've got to go find some clothespins to photograph...

Anvilcloud said...

So, you're just handing us a "line" today. :)

TexWisGirl said...

always lovely finds here, no matter what the theme. :)

Snappy Di said...

Oh, I like photos of clothes pins. Takes me back to my childhood when Mom had us hang out the sheets and towels. They just smelled so good when dried that way.

Pegs and washing lines, especially at dusk, can make really lovely photos.

I had a little kid come over through the summer and empty my clothespins. Not sure what he does with them, a unique toy of sorts. Told his mom and now feel bad I don't see him outside.

Daryl said...

I have a clothes line w/clothes pins shot and I love it .. there's something wonderful about the pins on the line even when the line isnt gainfully employed!

Leah J. Utas said...

Your clothespins have such character.

Elizabeth Grimes said...

Makes me feel kind of nostalgic. They're lovely.

Gail Dixon (Louisiana Belle) said...

Beautiful shots. I can't remember the last time I've seen clothes drying on a line. Miss those days...and the fresh scent of line-dried sheets on the bed. Mmmm...

Tabor said...

You may (or may not) be surprised that I also took a few photos of clothespins on a line during my Utah jaunt. Are we running out of things to photograph or are we just too artsy for words?

messymimi said...

Empty clothespins are beautiful, in part because they mean the laundry is done! :)

photowannabe said...

Enjoy your time at the cottage. If I had a place like that I would be there too.
Love the clothes line shots. You make the simple things into beauty.

Jinksy said...

Your clothes pegs are like an exotic flutter of birds, and your sunset clothesline spectacular. :)

Maria said...

Linda said...

You make even clothes pins look beautiful. :)

Dianne said...

I'm not usually amused by clothespins but when you shoot them they dance :)

Unknown Mami said...

I never found clothespins quite so lovely.

Susan in the Boonies said...

Get those clothes inside or they'll get all wet in the dew in the morning!!! :-D

Hilary said...

Thanks always for the kind words, everyone. They're always so appreciated. :)

Dave said...

Hilary, those clothes pins (we call them clothes pegs) make interesting photos when taken in macro - Dave

Glo said...

Handy to have the clothespins in readiness. Love the clothes hanging around for the sunset :)
