I think this was shot in the same house as the "Fatigue" lady I posted before. The women in the house at the time probably didn't think anyone would take pictures of their washed undies but a photographer sees a picture in almost anything.

I like this image quite a lot the depth of field is just right and I agree with your notes photographers do see images in almost everything, but having the camera at the ready and taking it, is another matter. But you did and have produced a lovely shot. THe Black and White treatment works very well here, had the picture been in colour it would have lost impact. Well done!!

Haha. You can almost feel her cringe as you take this... "Is he shooting my knickers?".
Had it been today, she'd call the police and have you arrested!
Its a great shot, who'd have imagined that old baggy knickers could look so cool?

That is simply beautifull, and a proof that photography can fix a moment forever. I really do like your photos of the 60's, that remind me the photographer Nicolas Bouvier : you seem to prefer ordinary people than hype, daily life that "technologic Japan". A good choice : hype and "brand new" are getting kitsch very quicky, but daily life and normal people got something eternal.
The BW, the choice of the frame, the contrasts get great dynamism, a kind of like. My regret : I will never be able to take photos like that...
