Dirty Laundry

I have always liked laundromats.  A lot!

I don't know if it's the sight of all that shiny glass and chrome around the doors of the washers and dryers, or just the fact that there's big-time instant gratification about having clean warm clothes just out of the dryer that smell fresh.

It's also a quiet place, one where you can hear your own thoughts, unless one of the washers is out of balance and then the whole building sounds like it's coming apart! But normally it's very peaceful.

I'm also rather fond of folding clothes...even fitted sheets, which I fold well enough that the woman that runs the laundry calls me "the sheet lady".

Today I took my Illy coffee can pinhole along with me to pass the time while washing clothes. I usually read while I'm waiting but I had just finished a book and didn't really want to start another one so played with the pinhole instead.

This was a 10 minutes exposure on Arista Ultra 4 x 5 sheet film.
Marinated in caffenol for 7 minutes.

What could be easier than that?
