Don't look up!

Don't look up. You just might get a sense of vertigo with all the construction going on around here. I've been watching this particular building construction for several weeks now. They are renovating an old building downtown and adding several floors.

This "spanner" is maybe 7 stories up, and he steps across the gap as if he was on the sidewalk. I get that crunchy feeling in my stomach just watching. But if you look down just below him, you can see his safety harness.

That is a nice picture, Steve. I hope your city gets back to normal and all those without homes get back into home.

This looks like a job I wouldn't want to do.

Great shot of that construction worker up there and my hat off to him (or her) for being able to work up there all day.

Even with a safety harness, I would not be that bold. Great shot!

Nice photos. My problem wouldn't be the looking up but when I looked down!!

I don't care if there is a safty harness, 7 stories is high enough for prancing around on the girders.
Thanks Steve for stopping by my blog and your nice comments. Please come again.

Very good picture, I've worked a bit on scaffolding but never felt the confidance that was needed to be safe up there.
I like the ground beneath my feet.

Glad I visited today, I do like it when I stummble across another Blog that I just know that I'll visit again and again.
