Thank you Osso and Saab. The photo I got in upstate New York - I was driving with my daughter and saw the clothesline - the house was on a fairly major road - though set back from the road. The clothes line was in the side yard, so was visible from the road.
I slammed on the brakes, pulled over and walked back to the house, my daughter yelling, 'Mom- what are you doing? You can't just walk up on those peoples' yard and take a picture of their clothes.'
But I did and no one came running out of the house to take my license plate number thinking I was a peeping tom or something.
The house in North Carolina - I wanted to live there. Every time I walked past that house, I thought, 'That's the kind of place I want when I get my own place- just a little house by a stream.

Yeah - that's what I love about photography. My hands can't manipulate what my mind's eye sees - I love color and would love to be able to draw - but I can't at ALL! It's always been such a huge frustration for me - but a camera makes it all possible for me- this artistic expression that my clumsy hands can't manage.
I'm looking for a clothesline picture I took in Italy - when I find it - I'll post it.
Thanks for starting this thread Osso.
