Photo taken on Aug. 21, 2011 shows several window cleaners cleaning the exterior of Oriental Pearl TV Tower in the upper air, in Shanghai, east China. A group of window cleaners, nicknamed as spidermen, were in charge of cleaning the exterior of the 468-meter-high Oriental Pearl TV Tower. They usually work from dawn till dusk, seeing the outline of the metropolitan all day long. Many of the window cleaners are migrant workers from the countryside and try to earn their living through toilsome work. (Xinhua/Chen Fei)
