On the line

I'm not in Laos anymore, but I have to post one more tribute to the daily beauty of the Ock Pop Tok Living Crafts Centre in Luang Prabang. Following a topic suggested and recently posted by Jo on the OPT blog, I'm sharing my numerous shots of the work hanging on the line.  This is a constantly shifting parade of yarns and finished scarves, presenting delicious juxtapositions.

Freshly washed or dyed scarves alongside skeins of silk are a celebration of texture.
 Inspiring palettes begged capturing for future reference.
The light and shadow of the trees in the garden, and the surrounding green create a lyrical setting for the handcrafts.
Hanging yarns range from the intriguing
to the serene
And generally speaking, it was hard to resist pulling out my camera every time I walked through the garden.
Sigh.... hard to believe I left this place, but I'll surely be back someday.
