The words of Paul Weller's song spring to mind "Uhh, and in spite of it all, Oh, I look at me so small
And compared to it all, I'm a fly on the wall"......I digress, this makes me nervous just looking at it! Awesome B&W shot.

A very strange job.
11 Mar 2009 12:40pm
Beautiful graphic composition !
11 Mar 2009 1:05pm
First, we make glass buildings and then we need someone to clean the glass. We know how to keep ourselves busy. But a great observation and brilliant framing.
11 Mar 2009 1:45pm
Now there's a job I could never do. Love the lines in this....and speaking of lines I can't believe he doesn't have a scaffold.
11 Mar 2009 3:00pm
Looks like he's in a world of his own, great find sweetie :)
11 Mar 2009 3:12pm
Amazing catch Sharon! Such beautiful framing and composition!! Love both the title and quote!:-)
11 Mar 2009 3:31pm
Beautiful image. Great framing and silhouette.

great composition and funny title :)
11 Mar 2009 4:33pm
wow great shot and very apt title
11 Mar 2009 5:09pm
The lines, the order. And then the violation of the order, the man-fly.
11 Mar 2009 5:14pm
How to give window cleaning that frisson of interest
Nicely almost abstract
11 Mar 2009 5:25pm
working hard, but be careful up there! awesome composition!
11 Mar 2009 5:30pm
Quel travail. Il ne faut pas se décourager... J'aime beaucoup le graphisme des lignes et les reflets. Par contre, j'aurais trop le vertige pour enfiler le harnais à la place de cette personne.
11 Mar 2009 5:54pm
Yikes! That scares the peadads out of me! Excellent capture.
11 Mar 2009 6:17pm
Le jeu de lignes est bien rendu, la compo aussi avec le personnage décalé. Dommage que la symétrie des lignes ne soit pas parfaite (décalage entre la gauche et la droite)
11 Mar 2009 6:56pm
I think Mark Twain must have had this current economy in mind with that old quote.
11 Mar 2009 7:49pm
métier de fou mais fait avec tant de grâce, capture extra du moment ^^
11 Mar 2009 7:52pm
Get it off, get it off ... stunning capture, excellent composition ... well done!
11 Mar 2009 8:01pm
Great lines. well seen.
11 Mar 2009 8:15pm
Such a good idea to treat it in B&W ! Love the effect*
11 Mar 2009 8:20pm
Whoah! Rather them than me ha ha
Great shot, sharon
Nice! This is a scary job! Excellent captation and composition. The human figure contrast with the straight lines of the buildings. Excellent.
11 Mar 2009 8:22pm
Risky job. Nice pic. Thanks for your comment.
11 Mar 2009 8:27pm
A brilliant photography and which gives the dizziness!
A very beautiful image
11 Mar 2009 8:35pm
Wouldn't want that job... just a little too adventurous for me ;)
Great capture and composition!
11 Mar 2009 9:10pm
such a well composed shot! i'm not sure that a window cleaner is something i'd ever do ahah! great capture : )
11 Mar 2009 9:31pm
Or a spider. Not a job for me.
11 Mar 2009 9:38pm
The intricate human figure in contrast to the simple glass grid - this could be a macro of a "fly on the wall" It puts the human being in perspective and in relation to the modern world.
11 Mar 2009 10:37pm
Outstanding capture! The lines make the person even more dramatic! Well done!
11 Mar 2009 10:45pm
A geometry supplements by these solid horizontal bases crossed by these light vertical lines. And integrated into all that, this poor fellow in full activity hung as it can with these two lines which seem fragile Bravo ;)
11 Mar 2009 11:05pm
That's a really cool image and the title is perfect.
11 Mar 2009 11:13pm
i love the light on those windows. (this job would scare the &#@*% out of me.)
11 Mar 2009 11:57pm
That's a gig I think I'd love to have. And I'd probably quit after my first day. I lived in a 14 story building once, and even at that height it's always windy. I can't imagine what it would be like 20, 30, 40, 50, 60 floors up.
I see this photo as man serving technology. It feels creepy and futuristic to me. Great shot.
12 Mar 2009 12:25am
a picture that says a lot, Bravo.
12 Mar 2009 12:57am
That is a lot of work...he must feel quite lonely up there...
12 Mar 2009 12:58am
Oh this one makes me nervous. I would not make it past the first floor. Great shot.
12 Mar 2009 1:36am
Great shot, has a great dramatic feel to it... nice work, and as 613 touched onto it surprises me that no one has come up with a way to do this without humans hanging several hundred feet above ground :)
12 Mar 2009 1:45am
You definitely know how to frame your shots Sharon. Superb composition, love the lines, lighting and dark contrasts. Excellent work as usual.
12 Mar 2009 2:39am
EXCELLENT!!! .... and what John M said.. ;-)
12 Mar 2009 4:18am
excellent, well seen and processed also
12 Mar 2009 4:39am
Top shot! Beautiful composition, love all the lines.
12 Mar 2009 5:15am
Brrrr.. what a job....
12 Mar 2009 9:24pm
Impressionnant et très graphique.
13 Mar 2009 9:01am
Very good !
15 Mar 2009 10:01am
I'm glag he's up there and not me. :( This image is captured and framed so well Sharon. H and V lines are perfectly placed, and the window washer being there just off set everything, is just right. Nice. :)
15 Mar 2009 2:27pm
Or whether it's, the human being always has his place.
