Lesson from a window washer

Window washer 2


I always take my gear with me, just in case. Yesterday it finally paid off. I was heading to lunch and saw this interesting reflection going on with a window washer. I stopped the car and parked and went to ask if I could make a few pictures. He didn't mind, and it ended up being a standalone for today's paper. It reminded me how important it is as a photographer to always be looking, never stopping, because you never know when a picture will present itself.

i agree!! also to the viewer your pictures are always so balanced across a horizon both with color and detail. it's pleasing to the brain. but question: do you enhance the colors very often? like the man's red hat or the red building in the reflection? to make sure to bring that red to the left and to the right since most of the rest of the picture is blue/black/dark/cool for a contrast? because if there were red on just the left or the right it wouldn't have been as pleasing or as balanced.
