Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Texture

365 Project: Day 84

When Spring is late in coming, you have to find colors where you can.

I have been looking at towels and I fell in love with this shade of green. It is a bit thick for my liking for when I go home to the Philippines. The problem there is the high humidity. I didn’t realize the connection between humidity and drying clothes until one time, as already an adult and has been living in America for a long time, I was baffled as to how long it took for my cotton top to dry. It was hang outside on a clothesline and there was a slight breeze, and even though the sun was up it took almost two days before it dried.

So now my one pre-requisite for towels to send home is they need to be cotton and not so thick and flush.

    I love the color, but you are so right about how long it takes to dry them. Using them in a humid bathroom would take a week to dry them out unless you tossed them immediately into the dryer.

    I know, you are so right. I didn’t bother with humidity when I was living in the Philippines. Maybe I didn’t know any better.

    I learned the same thing here in Egypt in the winter – it takes forever for the towels to dry, even in front of an open window, but in the summer they dry in something like an hour, it’s really dry heat here usually! Anyway, that’s a great texture, and greetings from Egypt!

    We have very high humidity in the Philippines so even during the summer and with all that heat, it is still difficult for clothes to dry. How is Egypt? You must enjoy it there.

    @ kyangel17: Best to dry them in the dryer but people in the Philippines would rather dry clothes in open air to save electricity.

    Humidity is what we had too much of in South Carolina! But in Egypt, I’m really enjoying myself, and I love recording all my fun in my blog! ;^)
