What better for B&W than a sweep.

Good ones, Dragonstar! With your complete sequence, it's sure to be a clean sweep. :)

That's really neat. I've never seen a chimney sweep actually working.

Nessa said...

Chimney sweeps are very good luck.

Interesting series of shots :-)

Is that a real chimney sweep? I honestly don't think I've seen one before. These are terrific present day, but retro images.

Dr.John said...

Great pictures but shouldn't he have a high top hat?

No need for black and white film when photographing a chimney sweep! Great series.

Verrry cool. A b&w of a mostly b&w business. And who can forget the magic of the chimney sweeper (Bert) in Mary Poppins with Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke?

Nothing to add than what I've written on Odd Shot. Perfect and Excellent. What an opportunity!

That must have been something else to see. These are great shots. I'm glad he didn't fall.

Lovely photos - I havent seen a chimney sweep on a roof like that in over 30 years.

My first reaction was "Now there's a job I wouldn't want!" But then again, aside from getting a little grimy, it wouldn't be a horrible way to make a living.

Assuming you can actually make a living at it that is.

I just watched Mary Poppins again yesterday and now I have that chimney sweep song stuck in my head again! LOL!
