Kemper Window Cleaning

wpid7666-AU0E7264.jpgThe window cleaning in Chicago is done one of two ways.  Some buildings have cradles that are hung from frames on the roof in which the guys can stand while they clean the windows.  Others involve ropes being hung from the roof with the guys abseiling down the side of the building cleaning the windows as they go.

wpid7668-AU0E7272.jpgI was working at my desk when I saw a crew cleaning the Kemper building’s windows being cleaned.  The guys looked very small against the side of such a large building.  As I shot them with a longer lens, the building became more abstract and the individuals looked even more remote.  It looked good to me so I grabbed a few shots before returning to my work.
