Nice capture Florence. I couldn't do their job no matter how much they offered to pay.
Florence: True. It's a risky, very risky job.
This one is a real winner, Florence. The colors in particular are especially pleasing.
Florence: Glad you like it Larry.

Florenc, this is some tribute to these kind of men doing all kind of odd jobs, I think a little more apriciation to these guys would be great.
I love the way you captured these brave ones!!!
Florence: Many thanks Astrid.
Great capture ... graphically abstract and has that Escher feel to it. richard
Florence: Thanks for this comment Richard.

Qu'importe le flocon pourvu qu'on ai l'Everest. La Thaïlande c'est pour bientôt Florence ?
Florence: Pour Novembre, la meilleure saison et puis un peu avant je repars à Venise. 2008 sera donc l'année des voyages ! smile
Well spotted Florence and what a job!
Florence: Thanks Bernie.

Interesting! What are they doing? It is nice how the two figures break up the geometry.

This is an interesting shot - the composition works really well. I like the combination of the graphic shapes and the two little people. Are they going up to clean windows? I would leave mine permanently dirty if I had to do this!
Great title and excellent capture! (:o)

I do not understand how people can choose to go and work like this! They must have nerves of steel.
