Health & Safety

By lifesnapper
Hi everyone, just a bit of topical stuff here. As you no doubt know, the Health & Safety mine field is creeping into every corner of our lives right now. But in some far flung places, it is still fine to stand on a rickety chair ontop of an unstable table standing on a slanting uneven surface, and reaching up to tie up some unruley flowers which are blocking his vision as to what is going on around him. But he lived to tell the tale, and gave some of us turists a bit of entertainment while sipping our Turkish Tea.
Have a very healthy and safe weekend everyone, and DON'T try this at home.

All the best to all,

John Smile

I do this regularly. Particularly in the exam room at school where the clock is about 8ft up the wall and gets through batteries at a ridiculous rate. Oh God, now I'll expect a knock on the door from H & S...

Health and safety - I thought it was an acrobatic show and these two had just tossed him up into the flowers

A job for the boys!! Another well spotted candid shot that projects the fun of everyday people superbly. It takes all sorts to make a world - and your view of these blokes had me rolling up. Excellent.
