Shot in the city of Shanghai, China.
A pair of pants were hung in the air in the lane which I walked. In addition, T-shirts, towels, and others were also hung. It was a common scenery in the residential area in Shanghai. Everybody hung the laundries in the air here. Seemingly, the local people have the custom to hang laundries above the public road for lack of space in their houses. The laundries were hung down from the electric wires. So I worried there was a risk of electrical shock when people hung up and down the laundries.
Anyway, the laundries in the air were waved softly in the air until they were dried. And a woman was sitting by the roadside while she was looking down. Although I had fun watching the flying laundries, they were dust and ashes for her. She was not interested in laundries above her.
