    We just went on our last trip to the laundrymat before we move into our new pad. In celebration of this event, I brought the camera to document it.

    The washers are ready for tomorrow...just not for us.

    Nice. Good study. Some interesting points of view. I like the high contrast.

    Very nice - they have a 50's sort of feel to them

    I really like the way you framed those pictures and your B&W conversions, especially the second last one. Good work

    I absolutely love this series :D You've turned something soooo mundane into art!! :thumbsup:

    On an aside I remember my last day at the laundry mat ... it too was a joyous momentous occasion ... it made me feel like I was finally grownup to have in-house laundry ... now I want mainfloor laundry so I don't have to venture into the recesses of the basement everytime I need clean underwear :mrgreen:

    Nice save there Arty! :mrgreen:

    I love this series. In fact, I think we should frame a few and put above our new washer and dryer next weekend! Your creativity is an inspiration, Hobbes!

    Ditto on the nice series remarks. The ability to take everyday objects and turn them into a fabulists photo essay is the mark of a gifted photographer. :lol: #2 of the baskets is my favorite, a long with #s 6 & 8.
