In Melbourne, there is a special technique to dry your clothes after washing them. You see, during the autumn/winter season, the sun rarely gets scorching enough.
Usually, people have a clothes dryer at home. But to a jobless engineering grad, it is just another burden.
Luckily there are lots of windy days during this season. So, I let the wind to "blow-dry" my clothes. Becareful if you are using this method. Winds are usually followed by rain, so at the sign of the first drop, rush to rescue your clothes.
Please don't be mistaken, the blurry image is not due to camera shake. If it is, the wooden fence would be blurry too isn't it. This is a photography technique called motion-blur. It is able to create a sense of movement in a photograph. This photo was shot at a shutter speed of 1/6 of a second. Can you feel the wind blowing?

partly bah. I use continuous burst and chose the nicest arrangement of the clothes. Most of the others showed crumpled clothes or didn't swing in the same direction.
