This is the scene outside my window, and typically people hang their clothes from windows to dry. There are spikes on the gutters above to prevent the ubiquitous pigeon population from sitting upon their thrones on high and selectively pooping over your fresh laundry.
So thinking this is a good idea I hung my tidy whities out of the window, on the line provided, and took off to the studio to get some work done, only to return and find that my freshly washed clothes were a bit spotted, and not quite as fresh as when I hung them. Lesson to self: first check the roofline for spikes on gutters, and hope that some devious pigeon isn’t laying in wait to spoil your day! I’ll spare you any pictures of my clothing.
