WINDOW CLEANING, if you're lucky...

Ten floors up, they are repairing the facade of my building,
and gave my 10' x 12'  exterior window span a bit of a wipe, 
a rare gift .....


  1. I took a very similar picture of the window-cleaners on 'Rhapsody of the Seas' but they were way above the water! We don't have the old-fashioned 'ladder-on-the-bike' window-cleaners here, only high tech who are right out of our range.

  2. What is 'high tech' window cleaning in Oz, I wonder. In New York and other cities with high rise buildings it is still a dangerous job - the suspended platforms,
    must wear safety harnesses, and much manipulation of ropes and pulleys!

About Me

My photo
JANUS - looking backwards and forwards is a Janus trait - for me a way to record the "in between thought", whether in retrospect, or as a notion for the future. I make original prints, currently etchings. I sometimes write and take photographs. I am inspired by what I see and read. Although postings are chronologically recorded by date and time in this protocol, the images exhibited, often seen in different stages of production, are from another time. So, with each new posting, earlier postings can undergo revision or amplification as will be noted, or requested. The addition of a SNAPSHOTS Blog and a VIRGINIA WOOLF Blog are included because my different interests tend to influence what I do as an artist. There will be a Family Blog, too, for the same reason.
