The photographers have explained:

"We became fascinated by 'the gentleman over the road' and his pavement mowing. Items of litter were swiftly scooped up and deposited in a neighbouring wheelie bin. We suspect many people have a neighbour who puts time and effort into maintaining the area around their home as well as their personal domain."
