Washing the Windows of My Mind

I never stopped to wonder how the maintenance crews of glass buildings in Vancouver keep all those windows clean - until a few days ago. As I was walking near the Vancouver Convention Centre, I saw this crane on the sidewalk. There's something so futuristic science-fictionish about the way it's perched there, spider-like. I wouldn't want to get in its way in an apocalyptic "Rise of the Machines" type scenario!

The older building in behind all the modern glass is the Hotel Vancouver, one of the grande dames of the downtown core.
