Theme Day - Worker

The City Daily Photo community's theme for December 1 is 'worker' and with that in mind I offer this shot of 2 guys on the outside of a building which I was touring around in looking for art. There was a huge addition to the building going on as you can see in the background. Where would we be without construction workers who often risk life & limb to get the job done?

Absolutely Pat.. There's no way I'd be up on that scaffolding.. Nice one for today's theme.

Very nice theme day shot. I agree - these people are so important to our communal life. Not being too "handy" myself, I really appreciate their skills!

I'm another blogger who appreciates the work of people willing and capable of doing dangerous jobs.

Sharon Anck said...

Another job that I couldn't do.

Revrunner said...

All in all, I'd rather have his job than the jobs of those window washers who were rescued from the World Trade Center in NY. :-)

It's a tough job, especially in the winter!

I agree, the people appearing in the them posts today do a lot of hard work, often dangerous work, we often forget.

TexWisGirl said...

indeed! in a lot of weather the rest of us wouldn't want to be out in...

Luis Gomez said...

This is a great shot Pat. Yes, it is hard work.

Halcyon said...

That's hard work, for sure! Hope they are well paid.

definitely very often workers risk their life..

William Kendall said...

It certainly looks like that work will be carrying on through the winter.

Andy said...

Not only do they risk life & limb but it is also hard work.

You are so right - where would be be. Something I certainly couldn't do.

Love how you composed this, it looks like a reflection!

Jack said...

Nicely composed, RedPat. If the construction company is following accepted safety practices, the workers should not be risking life and limb.

Stephanie said...

Nicely captured.

Kay said...

I love how you composed this shot. Very nice, and a good choice for today's theme.

Randy said...

Excellent theme day shot.

Julie said...

I like the style of the old building, Pat. I do hope the new one does not dwarf it (too much) and that they harmonise together. I am not sure that I could spend my working day going up and down in a crane.

Great image - and a great one for the theme!
