This good-humored photo was taken in Old Town of Dubrovnik which is surrounded by high walls that are open for people. You can enjoy walking up on the walls and see the old and new Dubrovnik from many different angles. The old town itself is full of houses built with bricks or stones and all roofs are red, and the small narrow alleys winding between the houses. I spot this home while walking up on the walls. This older woman had a washday but luckily there was not much laundry. Nice shot in busy tourist destination.
The size of the photo is big -sorry- but I wanted to save both roofs (foreground and background) that show the depth and nice shapes.

An interesting note and a fine photograph to accompany it. But not very much washing done that day!
Yes, this picture is huge - it's bigger than 2000 x 3000 pixels! But it is incredibly sharp and clear and there's lots of details to see within it.
You have composed this photograph very well, the lines of the roofs holding the image together nicely and with the open window placed perfectly in the frame so that we can appreciate the single item of underwear and also the upper part of the lady in the room, reading a paper while her pants dry!
Lovely light and colours (those roof tiles look brand new!), perfect exposure and excellent clarity.

Hi Kaisa, A daily life scenery in Old town of Dubrovnik. Well composed image with the red clay tile rooftop in the FG and it is well against a high wall. The window is old but seems very effective for ventilation. Nice light and angles. Thank for sharing

Dubrovnik as I keep it in my memories.Beautiful red rooftops and people living in this splendid town.I enjoy here your close-up vision of this scene and the way you used this diagonal line of the rooftop to lead our eyes through the scene to the woman.
Wish You a nice day
