  1. Oh my, I wish my wash-line looked like that! What fun. And what a nice juxtaposition between the straight lines of window (barred window ... hmmmm! What does this tell us) and walls and drainpipe and balcony above. There's a story here, for sure, for sure!! Delicious!

  2. Oh, this is so good. For colour and form and the contrast of those *stay away* bars on the window to the *hello, sailor" undies, but also for story. I would like to write this character as someone who outwardly seems a bit flaky and shallow, overly concerned with attracting attention but turns out to be something else entirely. You have an amazing eye, and this is one of my favourites.

  3. How perfect, how summery, how glamorous - and that brilliant yellow!
    And I do know a poem for this one, Ferlinghetti's "Underwear" - a short sample:
    "Underwear with spots very suspicious
    Underwear with bulges very shocking
    Underwear on clothesline a great flag of freedom"

    1. Perfect! I'm using the last line on Twitter for #TodaysPoem...

    2. Oh, nuts. The link won't link... sending it via FB instead.

    3. Leave it to you, Elizabeth, to know the perfect poem! :)

  4. Ooo la la! I can't help but wonder what this woman wears under when it's just an ordinary day, if anything! Polka dots, a black lace bustier and lacy panties! Sure beats the daylights out of whitey tighties!

  5. Now this is a story waiting to be written. Wouldn't you love to hang out for a bit and see who takes those interesting undergarments down from the line? I'll bet she's fun. Again, the composition makes it - the garments on the curving line at right, but all the straight lines (and that vivid yellow) behind. The bars on the windows suggest somewhere other than Canada, I suspect? Where did you spot this, Allison?
