Photographer's Note

Ghost in the city
People that work as cleaners and delivering papers do it very early in the morning they work hard and no body take notice. People expect to go to a clean office or pick up the paper in the morning.

When I came to Australia I did work as a cleaner for a school for a few years while I learned English. It was a lonely time starting work very early in the morning and leaving before any body was back at work. No one notice I was there.

It is interesting how people won’t notice these services until something goes wrong. I took this picture in Tibas a town close to San Jose. The council did run out of money in the middle of the financial year causing a mayor disruption on the basic services i.e. they did not collect the rubbish for a few weeks.
