They don't make them like they used to! by 

I know, getting excited about a clothesline! But they’re a rare find these days…….

Featured on the RedBubble home page as part of the “Wash Day” theme, 22/02/10:

Born in Victoria, now living in the outback of Western Australia, I love nature, music, and photography. I’m passionate about our environment, sustainability, and documenting the impact we’ve had on the planet.

I shoot both digital and film, and have a quirky collection of toy and vintage cameras that are a lot of fun to experiment with.

Thanks for stopping by.
