Photographer's Note


Sampa has a enormous army of city maintenance and sanitation workers. They are highly visible in their orange-yellow-green attire and do a thorough job, downtown Sampa is cleaner then downtown Rotterdam.
Two of them are shot on the Santa Ifigima bus station in downtown Sampa. They where part of a crew that was hosing down the pavement with a big water tanker as source. In a WS they're shown in action.

Limpeza means cleanness. This word is stencilled on the yellow jackets.

The prominently shown pattern of the pavement tiles depicts the outline of the state in an abstract form and is to be found throughout Sampa and also on the state flag (thanx Lucas for this info).

PCS3 tech: altered the saturation, contrast, curves and levels for the whole pic and some elements separately, enhanced the edges, USM-ed, added a frame and resized and did a gentle USM again.
