Before opening by awefaul

Currently unavailable for purchase

I usually go to the V&A Waterfront, Cape Town, very early to avoid rush hour traffic and this is one of a series I have on window cleaners who prepare the restaurants and shops before opening time.

Top 10 in the BLACK AND WHITE challenge of the SHOPFRONTS , 14/05/10

This was one of the first pictures of the window washers series. See some more over here

Digital photography is doing for photography what the piano did for keyboard music. You can still play music composed for the harpsichord on the piano but not the other way around.

    OMG, too good

  • Thank you.Unfortunately the essence of the picture is almost invisible in the thumbnail and it get very little attention.

    Love those window cleaner shots! Well done! You are right about the thumbnail!
    Unfortunately, that goes for many images….I can see clearly now!

  • Thanks Manfred. Compared to Facebook, for example, I get much more pleasure from a picture like this with its subtle detail.

    nice photo:))


  • Thanks. I have a lot of experience and know my camera really well. Take many pictures, the sooner you make your first 1000 mistakes the better and if you learn from a mistake it becomes a lesson.
