It's washing day!

Challenge has finished
We've all once been amused by these narrow, busy little streets with washing hanging on lines, offering a glimpse at people's intimacy. Have you ever found yourself trying put a face on their owner, rebuilding a whole world around a few square inches of colored pieces of textile? Show us washing on a line and let your imagination tell us the story.

My photo buddy and I were walking through a very bad part of town with our very expensive cameras trying not to be noticed, but it was very hard not to stop to take photos of this colourful display. Bright midday, washing blowing in the wind over an empty lot right next to a semi-demolished building. I imagine the people didn't have much of a choice.
