Dhoby Khana Laundry, Forty Cochin, India.

Earlier this year we visited the Dhoby Khana Laundry in Fort Kochin. This was like a textile gallery..Indian drying washing is much more exciting that Scottish. I loved the way the exhibits would change every day with new washing loads. Just as well I don’t live there otherwise I would be down there all the time photographing other peoples smalls!
