Climber Leeds City Centre

Walking along Park Row through the office district of Leeds I was passing an office building when something caught my eye, there was a man in climbing gear part way up the the inside of the glass wall that is the frontage.

This building is at 15-16 Park Row on the East side opposite the lovely old white building that is now the RBS bank. This building where the rope access guy was working has the whole of the frontage with a thick plate glass wall. This wall is similar to the one at the National Media museum in Bradford and keeping it clean brings its own difficulty, you need more than a wet cloth and a bucket. A good head for heights and some good climbing gear would be the first essential on this job.

Whenever I see a window cleaner I always think of the George Formby song When I am cleaning windows.

How I got Here...
I was walking down to make a coffee in Saltaire at Massarella's Art Gallery where my friend at a shop. I was mooching about there... My good friend Ellen used to a medical rep. She then said i dont want to worry you but I have called 999 for a ambulance... She then said look at the mirror in bathroom.... then.. I woke in hospital...
Then 5 months later... I have become Disabled.. Stroke, I lost ... job, flat, not mention my car... now at last I look much better...
So much for dreams... I ran with that for about 5 years, every day taking a photograph to put on site.
