und doch. gibt es berge, die wir nicht überwinden können? ja, die gibts. gibt es gefahren, die wir nicht überstehen? ja, die gibts. "und doch, die hundeblume blüht auch in der regenpfütze, noch lachen wir, noch machen wir nur witze". (biermann)
It's very rare that coloured street shots catch my eye. Usually because colour distracts me from the simple beauty of the composition. But not in this case. Here the photographer has kept a minimal amount of grey and beige shades and the vivid orange details work as an added bonus to the picture and lead my eyes to the main subject which is a worker doing a very dangerous job! I look at an everyday scene which many of us would probably not even notice it, unless we had the experienced eye of a skillful street photographer. My only remark is that I would try to place the worker more to the left and a bit lower in the frame, but knowing how much difficult is usually to compose a street shot exactly the way we like it, I should't even mention this detail.
I see this work in harmony with its title, climbing mountains is by nature destabilizing, and the kind of "'off-position" of the worker in the composition is transmitting exactly that feeling_well done.
I don't think you stumbled over there by chance; in quantum physics the results are influenced by the expectation of the experimentalist... you were looking for a special picture(consciously or unconsciously)then the result/scene came in accordance with those expectations... (like the butterfly in Tokyo that engenders a storm in N-Y)
