Did you ever wonder what it is like for those window washers that work on those platforms dangling on the sides of skyscrapers dozens of stories above the windy and noisy streets below.
I caught this shot of this platform parked after a day's work, at the parking garage at the foot of Canal Street the other day. The men had been replacing a sign and doing touch up work. You can see the motor (with the red tarp over it) that brings them up and down. I guess it is parked here on about the 9th floor because it is easy to get in and out of the platform.
The view is out over the platform into the French Quarter and beyond -- looking with the Mississippi River at my back toward Lake Pontchartrain (just out of view on the horizon). I got quesy enough just leaning my camera out to take this shot, that I immediately took this job off my bucket list.
I think they have openings. Interested?
