Reminding me of some of the images I took of the Amish Barn raising--- different materials, different cast-- altogether, people working to get a job done quickly.

I LOVE how you have processed and presented this image! first rate!

Must be a Martial Arts team in training for the Olympics Andrew,
and they are just getting their weapons prepared !!
Think the guy at the right hand end has made the wrong choice.
Got a bit of a kink in it that one !!

They look like they're posing for a fashion shoot or something. Or perhaps the new Village People.

Ah...they're putting up scaffolding, Lillian. This is a house two houses away in my housing estate. They're building a 3-storey house and those guys were 3 floors up yesterday evening.

Photo suits the title Andrew, though not sure these workmen would agree, good to see they appear to be wearing some kind of harness in case of a fall, though no hard hats, which are compulsary on any job site here.
Sorry I've missed so many of your uploads, will be having a scout through them later, but no comments I'm afraid!

I think this is the Olympic qualification process for the Singapore pole vaulters! Wink A good shot of these men at work, tut tut no hard hats and harnesses, health & safety would have a field day over here and would close the site down!

I really like the way you've processed this one Andrew - the mono suits it perfectly. Funny how each of them seems to be doing something different from the rest, as though they're all doing their own thing and ignoring one another (apart from the ones having a chat, of course Smile)
