Escaping the Laundromat

We had some heavy items to wash, which would have been problematic our aging washing machine, so we took them to the laundromat one morning. It was a little hot and stuffy in there with somewhat grungy, uncomfortable seating, so I took my coffee outside and began to wander.

Just around the corner I spotted a few potential photos, so I returned to the car to grab my camera. Now, I don't take my camera everywhere (although I suppose that I should), but I had grabbed it that morning.

I was intrigued by this pretty flower box under a window on a plain garage wall.

The same house had a flower box under the window facing the street. In the original photo my reflection and an uninteresting house were starring back at me, do I decided to try to change it. I don't think the result is all that good, but it's better than the original in my opinion.

The next and final photo is of a different house and shows the flag flying between two trees, so I snapped it.

Older neighbourhoods are much more interesting to me than newer ones, and people in this one had added some very nice touches that made for a fine diversion from the laundromat.

You are so right about older houses being more interesting, in my opinion.

Have camera will travel, AC.

But where are the pictures of the laudromat? That can be interesting too.

I love the last one -- the transparency of the red field in the flag, the sharp angles, and the twisted tree.

My take everywhere camera died at Comic Con and has to go to the shop. Yes, it is good to take it with you to catch moments like these.

I agree about the older neighbourhoods. Our house in Toronto was 150!
