Photographer's Note

This informational post is in response to lemon_logix's call to post photographs of how other parts of the world dry clothes. In the rural areas of the Philippines (and I am sure in many parts of the world), this is how clothes are dried - the clothes end up smelling sun-fresh.

We were visiting a piece of beachfront property that we purchased for our retirement ... just before the property, we encountered the caretaker's wife who has just finished the laundry and was spreading the clothes on the gravel to dry.
She washed the clothes by hand in the nearby river just like this and then spread them out to dry. The gravel is made of big smooth stones and are usually clean (no dirt).

The fronds in the foreground are coconut leaves which were also left out in the sun to dry. She is probably going to use them for firewood.

Tech: scanned from a negative, autocolor and then unsharp mask.
