POTD - Dublin Wash

POTD - Dublin Wash
©2011 Kristin Corlett

This is the laundromat where my husband and I spent a few hours one rainy evening in Dublin, Ireland.  I remember him asking me why in the world I was taking a picture of the washers.  I really liked the repetition, the numbers, the post-it hanging from one, and the lone backpack - not to mention all of the reflections. 


This was the inspiration for my Photo of the Day series (POTD) but I called it the Daily Photo at the time. (blogged here) I showed the original photo and then what ended up being the photo I liked best using a texture in Photobucket. Today my husband wouldn't even think of asking me why I was taking a picture of something off the wall, but that was three years ago. A lot has changed in three years.

I'm happy to have it as a part of my Best Of series.

I've found the Irish have the best washers.
Can you get Guinness at the laundromat?
They pour the best pints at the Irish pubs. I have taken pictures of a pint but not while I was in Ireland. I wasn't blogging back then.

Wow! I think you have just inspired me with a new project... the best of... hmmmmmm!

I can't believe you are three years into the project. You have amazing determination and such a gift for seeing beauty in everyday things. You will succeed at this for many many more years.

You do the best lineup photos. I love the photobucket look to this one.
