Reflections Of AmsterS@m - Hero

Reflections Of AmsterS@m - Hero

Unedited mobile phone cam shot of a city cleaner doing his thing, reflected in a puddle in Amsterdam. No editing at all, no tricks, no Photoshop :)

I was shooting puddle pictures when this city cleaner pulled up next to me with his truck and replaced the full garbage bag of a public trash can with an empty one, so I had to shoot him. I think guys like him are true heros, they make this city a better, cleaner place and they don't even expect us to thank them whenever we see one of them executing this hard task. I felt that the least I could do is to give him some praise on the Interwebs, because I like what they do and we should never underestimate the importance of people volunteering to clean up after modern society, who's main goal seems to be to waste all of this planets natural resources in the dirtiest, fastes way possible, leaving giant trash piles behind for somebody else to take care of.

Thank you guys, you're Heros :))
