There are 2 things I love about this:
1: The subject being washing on the line [I have a bit of a "thing" for photos of washing hanging out to dry]
2: The focus/DOF. Its perfect.
[Are they dinosaur pants?]
August 21, 2011 at 11:23 pm
They are indeed, they're training pants: nice and plastic lined for journeys.

Ahhh not for much longer hopefully!

Cracking shot and silent sunday, yes it says an awful lot that picture. I keep putting it off, hope you're not going potty!
By Tuesday I was starting to rock, by Thursday I'd lost the plot completely. We're getting there though; we might even be there!
August 21, 2011 at 9:03 am
Fantastic – hope all things potty related are still going well?

Pants! I was queen of pants a few years ago… (long story just trust me lol)
August 21, 2011 at 11:26 pm
I would love to hear your queen of pants story, sounds intriguing!

Oh what a fab shot, and I'm sure this perfectly sums up your week. The perfect Silent Sunday, I think! I need to do this too, but delaying – must try harder.
August 21, 2011 at 11:27 pm
Thanks for your comment; it sums up my week perfectly! It's a tad stressful, but there's no going back now!
August 21, 2011 at 9:54 am
what a great photo! we have hundreds of little pants in our washing at the moment because we are week 2 of potty training
August 21, 2011 at 11:28 pm
I'm just about to start week 2 of potty training, I'm hoping that there won't be hundreds of pants around the place!
August 21, 2011 at 10:08 am
what a great photo!

At least we are seeing clean pants this week
August 21, 2011 at 11:29 pm
They were clean last week! I wouldn't show you dirty grundies!
August 21, 2011 at 11:02 am
Perfect! Says it all about you week! and beautifully composed
Thanks Fay, rather chuffed with the composition myself.

We were clearly both on the same wavelength this week! http://offcumden.blogspot.com/2011/08/silent-sunday_21.html
My photo isn't as good as yours though!
August 21, 2011 at 1:57 pm
Brilliant photo! What a lovely line of little pants! xx
August 21, 2011 at 11:30 pm
Aren't they cute? Love the dinosaur ones myself. And the blue ones with the monkey on the front!

August 21, 2011 at 3:59 pm
love it! That must sum up the fruits of your labour this week! I can't wait till we're out of nappies in our house and into 'big girl pants'!
August 21, 2011 at 11:31 pm
It is the complete sum total of my week, pants!

Ha, ha…. i'm impressed two pegs per pair.. it does get easier, it just clicks for them one day….
August 21, 2011 at 11:32 pm
The pegs were almost as big as the pants! He's doing really well actually.

I love the natural sunlight and bright colours, great photo – and great reason for the shot too!
Thank you, I love the vibrancy.
August 21, 2011 at 5:20 pm
Now there's a picture that says a thousand words! This is a great silent Sunday picture :). Apart from having a story behind it the composition and colours are great – love it!
August 21, 2011 at 11:33 pm
Many of those words were "Oh dear, never mind" or silently said inside my head along the "bl**dy hell" line.
Lucy at Dear Beautiful Boy says
August 21, 2011 at 5:33 pm
Oh what a brilliant shot to sum up your activities of late. I love those dinosaur pants the best. x
Only 'cos you can't see the Monkey ones further down the line!
August 21, 2011 at 5:51 pm
You said you'd taken teh perfect shot earlier this week and I agree – it's is a lovely photo and poignant as well.
Told you I had it nailed!

I love this photo…it would make a great canvas….one to remember how well The Boy has done this week
August 21, 2011 at 11:34 pm
I could put it in the utility room above the washing machine!
August 21, 2011 at 7:47 pm
What a great shop and how is The Boy doing?
August 21, 2011 at 11:35 pm
We are very nearly there with the potty training, he's managing to hold it for an hour now and can take himself off to the potty. Ever so pleased with him!
August 21, 2011 at 7:56 pm
August 21, 2011 at 8:21 pm
Who doesn't love little pants hanging out to dry? Dinosaur pants ROCK!
I wish I had some dinosaur pants!
Nic's Notebook says
August 21, 2011 at 8:23 pm
Aww cute shot!!!
August 21, 2011 at 8:32 pm
It's those dinosaur pants again. Do they make them for grown women? (if not they should)
August 21, 2011 at 11:36 pm
They definitely should, I would buy some.
August 21, 2011 at 8:42 pm
fabulous photo! (and good luck by the way!)
August 21, 2011 at 9:10 pm

awww, that will be me within the next year i hope – it's still nappies on my line at the moment. little people clothes on a line always make me smile.
August 21, 2011 at 11:37 pm
I'm having to pack away his little bodysuits at the moment, breaks my heart. Only made better by his cute little pants.

August 21, 2011 at 11:44 pm
Beautiful shot. Pure joy.
August 21, 2011 at 11:55 pm
So cute! A line pegged by a 'proud' Mummy – glad he's doing so well.

Aww the potty training washing line. He's doing so well x
