Having fun again with the old fashion look.

The girls playing in the laundry. I sepiaed the pic and then lowered the saturation. Put an edge and played with some stains on that.

Colours of all our childhoods, smell of clean sheets, the smile on our mother face, the free spirit of innocence ... all beautifully seized on your pic.

Very nicely framed, matching the atmosphere.


Makes me homesick for my childhood days, when my mother would hang the clothes on the line and I would play among them, just as these pretty girls are doing. I love their expressions, and you've done a wonderful job creating a mood of nostalgia.


A great capture, Annetta! Looks straight out of the 50s. Thanks for posting


Just love it! A really successful 'aging' of the picture - great atmosphere!

What a wonderful photo! The sepia tone really makes it.
I half expect to see the girls in saddle shoes! :)

great image
reminds me of my childhood ,don't hang washing out nowdays most tumbledry
timeless image
I'd prefered B&W rather than sepia
Great pic

Congratulations Annetta for this photo winning first place in the county fair, and Best Photo in the show.

What a great 'nostalgic' scene. If only the older girl was wearing a dress. Oh well, pants are fashionable. Good work with making the image look old, especially the stains.
