The sky here

Horizon

We traveled by foot or boat in this city where there are no cars, no buses, no parking lots, where side canals are quiet enough that you can hear the flap of clothes on laundry lines, a city where faded buildings rise from the water.

Out to dry

It's funny - I'm used to seeing so many plants and so much green in your photos ... but from this collection, it seems like there's NO growing stuff there, other than maybe the odd pot. Is that accurate?

The laundry photo symbolizes your whole blog (/you): your willingness to look at the world from a different perspective enriches our (your readers') worlds.

Yeah, but think about it.

How would >you< like it if tourists came from miles around to see >your< flooded basement and >your< hanging laundry?

A quiet city - sounds great...

Anonymous: Not much green inside the city itself, unless you count the water in the canals. I think that's why the window boxes are so noticeable.

Silver Creek Mom: Yes, I'm just using a small point-and-shoot camera that fits in my pocket. I am quite jealous of the expensive cameras many of the tourists here seem to have.
