daly scene from Corfu 1

The beautiful architecture of the houses in old Corfu are an interesting theme for photographers. These houses can be 4 levels high and do not have an elevator. Another characteristic of people who live in the old city of Corfu is the fact that they put the clothes on ropes connecting the buildings with each other to dry.

Bonjour, cher Costantino,
Encore une image qui fait plaisir à voir. Une image efficace et prise sur le vif.
En un mot : une image naturelle très appréciée.

hello Costantino, Typical scene from Mediterranean- be it Italy, Greece, Portugal. Colourful laundry against the rather dilapidated wall. Attractive composition.

Kind regrads Malgo

Witaj Costantino!
Classic view, photo makes impression.
Good frame and colors.
Have a nice new week my Friend.

Hello Costantino,
It's a simple but eye-catching and attractive photo with a good light and fine contrasts. It is interesting that every piece of laundry has a different colour. There are not two similar items, which makes the photo remarkably catchy and attractive.
Kind regards,

Hello Costantino,
Washing drying in the sunshine without the need for electricity, very eco-friendly and cost effective! A colourful daily life image with the added value of some lovely textural detail to be observed in the crumbling walls. I like the shadow play across the bottom part of the composition.

Hello, Costantino!

The colorful towels make a very nice contrast with the gray façade in the background, everything was captured with excellent sharpness and light management! Wonderful and original composition! Very well done!

Hello Costantino,
Wonderful daily life scene of the laundry hanging out to dry in the pleasant sunlight. The colourful towels stand out from the façade and the shutters.

Fine attractive detail from the street. I like the textures and the colors, well observed.

Hello Costantino,

This is real the daily life picture of the week.
The clothing and shutters are a nice image
Also nice perpective and depth picture.
Very well done, nice colour, excellent sharp and clear. TFS.

Best regards,

Bonjour Costantino,

Si ces murs pouvaient parler, ils en auraient long à raconter. On pourrait croire à un quartier italien mais c'est la Grèce qui est à l'honneur. Les couleurs sont belles.

hello Costantino

The old town of Corfu is a gem but is best visited from somewhere not so close to the airport! A nice colorful detail of the washing hanging out to dry. Tfs!

Ciao Costantino,era da un po' che non si vedevano foto della serie "washing day",hai fatto bene a rispolverare il tema,oltretutto la scena è molto bella,grande contrasto tra i colori del bucato e il monocromo della vecchia facciata. Buona serata,Luciano

Hello Costantino

A pleasant daily life and washing day scene from Corfu. The colourful laundry really stands out against the grey and pale blue background. Nice texture along the facade. The shutters adds to the charm. Lovely shot:) TFS.

Greetings, Erling

Geia sou Costantino Do you why clothes lines are so interesting to look at? Because they tell much about the body weights of occupants and if they are rich or poor! Nice colorful array and according to your note, a guy could steel girls underwears from the lines attached to facing buildings!
Se xereto

Hi Costantino
Nice capture of a small private world - a mundane subject not lacking of interest though, the vivid colours is especially vibrant contrasted by the wall. Good observation and well captured, Congrats
Best regards

Hello Costantino,

good image of this daily scene we can find in every city, I like the photo with the colorful clothes you show, it is an interesting composition, well done,

Best regards,


Hello, dear Costantino.
Very good composition, with this typical stamp of many places, with the day to day washing of the clothes, I like this type of images, I have some in my gallery.
A magnificent color that gives much chromatic richness to the image.
Well done. I like it.
I wish you a nice week.
Very best regards.

Hi Costantino, good photograph of this interesting composition with hanging clothes, very well captured in this interesting image, with good clarity, light, color and quality. Very good and interesting work perfectly done, my congratulations, my friend. Thank you for sharing this beautiful work.

Good night and happy weekend.
Best wishes from the south of Spain.

Hi Costantino
what is it about laundry on TE? We all seem to enjoy laundry shots :)

I guess i fall into that category as well, but actually my favorite part of the shot is actually the crusted wall in the bg. that gives so much rustic charm and history. and because the wall is a flat color, the colorful laundry makes gives the scene life. nice shot

Hi Costantino,
ha ha ha
I would rather vote for Italy while seeing this photo. For some reason the "washing day" photos make me think of Italy rather than Greece.
Fantastic capture, the colorful washing adds so much interest here and is well spotted against the old architecture.
Very attractive for the eye.
Great work!!

Hello Costantino,
I love photos of laundry drying in the sun. These colorful towels stand out so well against the ancient facades.

Hello Costantino
It is always great fun when the local residents taking account of our wishes for colourful pictures and sort their laundry on that element.
You perfectly tool advance of this opportunity.
Well done. Have a nice day. Groet Rob

Ciao Costantino,
