High-Rise Window Washers


While waiting for the bus, my wife captured this shot of the Wells Fargo building with her cell phone. If you look up at the very top, you can see the window washers.These guys are just sitting there and swinging away on a chair-type apparatus, while working. My hat's off to them, because there is NO WAY I would do this..

...and yes, the building edge is that sharp.

  1. That is some scary S*#@! I can't even look out a window from that far up without throwing up.

  5. Cinnamon-Girl: You can say that again! I never had a problem with heights until I fell off a roof. Ever since then, it's a battle for me to climb ladders, etc.

    Furkidsmom: I know, you can be sure I wouldn't be doing it.

    Ann: Thanks, it was taken from my wife's phone. I agree, there is no way I would be up there.

    BeadedTail: Same here. I don't do windows :)

  6. It really makes me thankful for the job I have when I see what some others have. I work in a tall building like that too and see those guys at work.
