A Moment in Time


While sleuthing around the city of Milwaukee, I spied this interesting image. 
 It had all the qualities needed for good picture making - 
strong value contrasts, an interesting abstract composition, reflections,
 the juxtaposition of old and new architecture,
 and a great focal point -
 the window washing pair.
I studied the full range of gestures that were part of the washing and ladder moving,
looking for just the right moment......
the perfect instant.....
waiting to click!
In the end, patience and persistence rewarded me with a captured fleeting moment of time,
which is the wonder and beauty of photography.

ISO 100, 55mm, f/7.1, 1/100
