Laundromats

Laundromats are fascinating to me. I find myself stopping and taking pictures of them whenever I have my Holga or Digital camera with me. If no one is inside I go in and take pictures. Dryers are my favorite. I enjoy doing my laundry at them and sometimes I set up a tripod and take pictures while my clothes are washing.


This is my favorite laundromat. I like the green effect cross processing adds to the atmosphere of the place.


Through a dryer door are more dryers.


Double exposure. Please do not sit on the folding tables.


And yes, I even took pictures of washing machines in Japan. This was easy as it's outside.


A laundromat in the Yanaka neighborhood of Tokyo.


I took these pictures with my digital camera kind of hidden inside my jacket. I felt like a weird foreigner...and I guess I probably looked like one too. I regret I didn't get to use a laundromat in Tokyo.


The Japanese dryers look pretty much like the ones at home except they're closer to the ground. I like the individual folding tables.


This laundromat was busy the day I stopped to take pictures so I didn't take any interior shots. It's very homey looking.


I like the rooster and the neon sign in this double exposure.
