Alternative Perspectives ... #65

In our cities of today with their high rise buildings its often easy to forget about those who work on the outside as opposed to the inside where we normally are.

Some would say that they spend most of their day just hanging around !!! ... but every time our windows get cleaned it's appreciated. Its always surprising, even in a the Wellington environment, with its wind and clear air, how much crap can float around and stick to the glass 30 to 40 floors above the ground.

These guys descended past my window, to carry out maintenance on the rain catchment system. This view is looking south towards Brooklyn and behind the workman on the right is the wind turbine on the Brooklyn Hills ... just imagine it as a 3 blade propellor in his headspace. He was the building crane operator and the guy on the left was the plumber.
