Doing Laundry by Hand in Antigua Guatemala

Rudy Giron: Antigua Guatemala &emdash; Doing Laundry by Hand at the Public Washing Sinks

Often photography enthusiasts and photographers taking a photo walk with me ask if the people still do laundry at the public lavaderos at Tanque de la Unión, Pilas de Santa Clara is the proper name. Well, I was asked that this weekend and sure enough we get there and this woman from Santa María de Jesús was doing laundry.

By the way, the only way to get photographs to feel intimate, you have to be very close, I mean breathing on the neck kind of close. Zooming in with a long telephone will never do it.
