The story behind Laundry Day in Barcelona…
In Barcelona’s old town, Barri Gotic, what stands out is color. Vibrant tones were everywhere. “It made me think I’d never really appreciated some of what the future pushed aside.”
Part of it is the laundry drying in fresh air along the narrow alleys, but there are also the exteriors painted in more light, airy colors than the city that surrounds the old quarter. This tells me that, before cars and electric lights everywhere, people took more pleasure in their urban surroundings.
