Welcome to my new project – Washing Lines
This one I spotted in the Moroccan city of Fes…
A sneaky picture this because people in Morocco don’t like having their picture taken. As we walked through the city Kim kept snapping away taking pictures of local people as they went about their business. She had to be quick however and mostly secretive about what she was doing.
This is something to do with being suspicious about having an image made of themselves and on most occasions when someone saw a camera pointed their way they would either turn away or wag a reproachful finger to say no.
It is a Challenge. Feel Free to Join in.

Welcome to my latest theme. Monday Washing Lines.
This rooftop washing line I spotted in Fes in Morocco…
The clothes now wave that hang upon
the tired old line that stretches from
a leaning pole to a rusted hook
left here now for folk to look.
Every garment pegged and spaced
each shirt and sheet carefully placed
along the line the stockings run
until they dry in the scorching sun.
Still no travel plans so continuing to look back, this time to Morocco in North Africa…
