Golden Gate Balancing

Thanks to Frizz for this watercolor sketch of one of my photos. I love his attention to detail, right down to the portion of the “Skyclimber” decal visible on the side of the hard hat.

Just a side note: the ship passing under the bridge is registered out of Hamburg, which is where a friend of his works controlling container ships just like/possibly even this one. It’s a small world (but I’d hate to have to paint it).

    thank you dear Allan = SKYCLIMBER for inspiring and reblogging! Maybe you have not enough patience to draw – but I would never ever dare to balance on the cables of the Golden Gate Bridge!

      Thanks for the kind words, Frizz. I have done some drawing in my time, mostly in the ’60s when I was in college. After that the drawing that I did everyday at work was along the lines of schematic/wiring diagrams and architectural layouts for electrical installations. It was all very specific and detailed. As I grow into the Retirement mode I may “loosen the bonds” of that discipline and pickup with my free-hand work.

      As always, anything is possible if we want it enough.

        sweet ohm, looking back to the sixties I remember myself opening all available old radios (before the transistor decades), once I had 700 volt in my fingers… and a bad pack of amperes; thanks god I followed the rule not to work with both hands…

        Yikes! Ohm’s Law and the Law of Gravity—two absolutes.
