Perfect synchronisation of their movements and steps. A real team. Haven't the faintest idea if it's paradise or not but it's a great street shot.... :-)

Excellent street shot and super processing.

Cool b&w - like what you bring here. I was thinking about the quote could have mean something about don't throw stuff out, since you might need them? The again not throwing stuff out will leave of you with a smelly driveway and angry neighbors.
10 Feb 2009 9:38am
a great street life capture ! hard work for them ! excellent BW and timeless shot.
10 Feb 2009 9:47am
What a moment.
From one hand, I love this "human chain", from some point of view, it even makes "us" look like ants.
On the other hand, it's not an easy situation for those women.... Nicely seen.
10 Feb 2009 10:03am
Good B&W photo. I lke the gry colors
10 Feb 2009 10:29am
Really a hard work. I like the way you've caught it.
10 Feb 2009 10:57am
Poor ladies. that's got to be a rough and dirty job.
10 Feb 2009 11:31am
hah!!! Love the title. Wonderful story you tell Sharon. The composition is superb.
10 Feb 2009 11:48am
Great timing. People can find a way to socialize and enjoy each others company in almost any situation. That’s the positive side of this image. Clever image, with a sense of realism and humor.
10 Feb 2009 11:49am
your title makes me laugh! excellent image, tells a story of it's own.
10 Feb 2009 11:56am

Perfect title for this picture of the daily. Excellent documentary shot!
10 Feb 2009 1:04pm
excellent composition !
10 Feb 2009 1:12pm
Great shot. I like that their back is turned to the camera, highlighting the anonymity of this type of labor.
10 Feb 2009 1:22pm
Nice street scene. A slice of everyday life.
10 Feb 2009 1:46pm
Perfect capture and quote that inspire a viewer to think and feel!

The boots, the aprons, the gloves, the hair nets, not a lot glamour, more and more where turning into the working poor.
10 Feb 2009 3:25pm
Definitely not a great job to look forward to every day, but they are probably a bit better off than some of the characters in Phil's song. Super capture.
10 Feb 2009 3:56pm
This is just brilliant!
10 Feb 2009 4:09pm

10 Feb 2009 5:19pm
For many immigrants, in the majority of countries, it is the history of its lives. Magnificent photography.

You captured the right moment.

10 Feb 2009 11:48pm
Excellent candid shot.
11 Feb 2009 12:43am
Whatever they're toting must be bad since they need boots and all that other stuff. This is a great shot of work drudgery. The jobs someone is doing that are needed and less glamorous. There is feeling in this shot. Very nice.
11 Feb 2009 3:14am
I like the symmetry of this shot--wonderfully composed.
11 Feb 2009 6:58am
J'aime beaucoup.... une superbe photo
11 Feb 2009 10:14am
This reminds me of an ally restaurant type shot I missed. I wasn't feeling very bold that day, and hesitating, I missed it.
11 Feb 2009 3:59pm
Great capture of everyday life
12 Feb 2009 10:15am
you show that anything can be beautiful if it's seen the right way.
13 Feb 2009 12:12am
Great action captured!
15 Feb 2009 6:41am
great capture and great title. I like the repeating pattern of the person - bin - person - bin - person, and the sense of action, as if they are dancing.
