Ladder, more light and shining path.

1. I like to see the window cleaner move his ladder with his rucksack clipped on to the fourth rung. He leans it carefully against the wall and climbs up to put soap on a shop's glass, before swiping it off again. The other morning, he passed a frightening man who was muttering angrily to himself in a bus stop and said: 'Hallo Mike.'

2. Changing a lightbulb with too few watts to a brighter one.

3. On a rainy night the path up the hill shines when everything else is dark and dirty.
