faut pas avoir le vertige, je ne pourrais pas le faire, j'aurais toujours peur de tomber dans le vide. belle photo
need not to feel dizzy, I could not make it, I would always be afraid to fall in space. nice photograph

Ah, I've been avoiding the same task, but I guess it's inevitable, esp. if I want to see clearly out my windows.

I like the twin windows, and I suppose because of their beauty, the task might not be so odious!

Lovely "action" shot. I really love this kind of "everyday life" photos

Pam said...

Excellent capture, JM. You were in the right place at the right time! Unless you waited for her to climb out that window?

henny said...

What building? Hope she enjoys her work :).

Definitely I don't have guts for this kind of job...I mean about my fear of heights!!!

Have a nice week dear friend!

Love those balconies. Wish I had a lady to clean my windows.

Love this photograph. The joy of sitting in that room the day after this shot was taken and looking out on the world through those clean, beautiful windows. Sweet.

Excellent slice of life, though I wouldn't want to stand on a ladder on a balcony!

joo said...

Cleaning lady is nice, but what a building!
Have a nice week:)

Babzy said...

Yep , great street scene , not a funny work !

marley said...

What a job! Is it high up?!

m_m said...

Cleaning such beautiful windows is just a pleasure:) Nice shot!

Sharon said...

Good catch. I don't think I could do that job. I'd be afraid of losing my balance and falling over the rails.

Jacob said...

I wonder what she charges by the hour? This job appears a big precarious, however...and are those cracks I see in the concrete under the balcony?

Love the photo, JM!

Lois said...

Now that would make me dizzy up there on that ladder!

Per Stromsjo said...

Probably not as risky as it looks but I'd still prefer to remain among the ground troops!

That is the chicken said...

I'm with everyone else! This would make me dizzy and I know too many people who have fallen off ladders to want to try this! I love the shot though!

Small City Scenes said...

you think she would come to my house too? Soon? MB

Tanya said...

What a great find JM! Love those balconies!

Dina said...

Such a nice human touch.

Saretta said...

Please don't fall, please don't fall!
