...May seedlings were covered with over-turned buckets and laundry (1 of 3) was on the line.

January 1st is around the corner, along with an end to my daily posts, at least for now.
Dementia is so debilitating and Hubby needs more of my time.

I suspect the laundry was all washed by hand too

@Doug: Probably a generated washer ... or scrub boards and then a hand-turned wringer.

Nice framing with the washing line. Thanks for your comprehensive reply to yesterday

@grouser: Thank YOU, G'ser ... and you're welcome.

We're just home from a trip to the USA and we had the opportunity to visit Amish country so I was delighted to see your photos - they brought back very happy memories :)

@BiLL: I hope you have some Amish images to share too ... I'll look forward to seeing what YOU saw over here. ;D

Mhelene from Villiers-sur-Marne, France

Great composition . The laundry is very high ...!

17 Oct 2013 9:59am

@Mhelene: Yes, that clothesline is run very high on the pulleys.

Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom

These last two are chockabloc full with local detail. Have you been using a different processing technique?

17 Oct 2013 10:20am

@Curly: I never remember just what processing I've used, but between tonemapping and various other 'touches', these two did seem to pop. I appreciate your comment!
PS: How's your painting/decorating going?

Frances from Massachusetts, United States

This is a stunning shot Judy. There is so much to see in this. I love the clothes on the line.

@Frances: Thanks, Frances. I'm always torn between a broad scene that takes in everything, and a closer view that focuses on finer detail. ;D

What a great variety of geometric shapes in the scene.

I feel guilty taking a secret peep at their clothesline, lots to se though. ;>))

@Jeff: Awww, don't feel guilty, Jeff ... it's hung out there for all to see. (No faces to blur.) ;D

franz from Baden, Austria

so much to see here ... and once again, i'm very much impressed by the dimension of the enterprise !!!

17 Oct 2013 6:20pm

@franz: Thank you, Franz ... and yes, some of these farms are very large!

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

Wow! That's one incredibly high clothesline! The large scale of the barn is evident here as it dwarfs the surroundings. You've filled the frame nicely.

17 Oct 2013 6:22pm

@Steven: Thank you, Steven ... the pulleys for the clothesline are high on the barn, and go a long way back to the house.

Ruthiebear from Titusville, NJ, United States

I always enjoy seeing their clothes hanging on the line.

@Ruthiebear: Me too, Ruthie.

Don from Spokane, United States

A very interesting image of the dense barnyard. The Amish seem devoted to having their buildings very practical.

17 Oct 2013 6:58pm

@Don: Yes, everything seems to have a purpose.

Mireille T. from Ribérac, France

I really love your beautiful composition. All the details show their fascinating way of life. I feel they do a lot of hard work!

17 Oct 2013 9:57pm

@Mireille T.: Thank you so much, Mireille, and I agree; they work very hard!

Great view ... love the clothesline and the tiny clothes along with the slide ... a sign of an amish family with young children! Great photo!

@RBL: Thanks, Ruthie; I wasn't sure if others would see the tiny clothing or the slide, but of course you did. ;D

How do they hang the laundry so high??????

18 Oct 2013 1:10pm

@Japanalia: One pulley is at the house where it can be reached and the second one is high on the barn (in this case). The clothes then 'fly' high in the air and dry quickly.
