Mennonite / Amish Laundry: aka Big Clothesline for Black Shirts

You can't go wrong wearing mostly black, right?


You haven't seen a real clothesline until you've seen a clothesline like this. For some reason I very much enjoyed seeing these huge Amish/Mennonite clotheslines rigged up next to most homes around Lancaster, PA. They had cool pulley systems for launching the predominantly black laundry into the air. I'm not sure what exactly the Amish lady and her son thought about me taking their photo out the car window as we drove by, but I hope they weren't too upset.
