Weekly Photo Challenge: The World Through Your Eyes

“Share a picture of the world through your eyes.”
—The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge

This is the view I had a few days ago at work when my co-worker and I were in the basket of a JLG lift working on a light pole. You might say that we are mere shadows of our former selves….

    Great image for the graphic lines and bold colours on top of the image itself with the shadow the crane/bucket/whatever it is called –

    Fantastic image for the challenge…..and it makes my legs feel wobbly just looking at it! Heights were never my thing, and worse the older I get!

      Does using a wide-angle lens pose a problem for you? I ask this because everything looks so far away in them.

        No, if the composition is right. Distance isn’t an issue, looking down from a vertical position is!

    WOW1 You must have an incredible bucket list or bucket wish? You ARE lucky that red cannon didn’t go off while you were there or you could have been a former shadow of your mere self. Great picture.

      Hello Al,

      It is great to hear from you and I hope that you are feeling better. The ‘cannon’ that you referred to is actually a piece of the bridge cable that is on permanent display.

      As far as Bucket lists go, seeing the Northern Lights is at the top. One of the first journeymen that I worked with told me that he was so old he strung the temp power for the Northern Lights. After that job he went on to wire the mic for the Gettysburg Address…

      I have been making an effort to make the most of each day lately, just in case I don’t get very far down the Bucket List.

      Have a great weekend, Al
