Bags stuffed with dirty
laundry imply people, though
none are visible.

  1. A thought from the poem is, are the people not visible those who dirtied the laundry, or those who will clean it? The perspectives, and the idea of the people not being visible, is different in either case.

    • Your comment is very interesting, because of the backstory on this image. I almost never photograph people, but I spotted the laundry man, pushing this cart down the street. I wanted his photo – REALLY wanted it! I followed him for 2 or 3 blocks, but never could get a shot that wasn’t cluttered with other pedestrians, or traffic, or whatever. So I settled on getting this while he was inside the truck. So, my own particular interpretation is that the “implied” people are the ones who will clean the laundry.

      As always, thanks for your insightful comment.
