If I Could Turn Back the Hands of Time

…Evanescent can be any fleeting moment in time…This week, show us a moment in time that holds meaning for you.
—WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge

Working on the Golden Gate Bridge for fifteen years was the experience of a lifetime for me. Watching the sunset from the top of a tower is both humbling and energizing as the dying rays of light brush fiery colors across the orange-painted steel.

If I had a chance to do it all over again, I would say “yes” in a heartbeat.

      It is actually a friend of mine that I took on a tower trip after work one day.

      it is going well, Jo. I am getting my sleep patterns back to a more normal pattern after 15 years of rotating shifts each week. Thanks for checking in.

    I love this shot, Allan. A job that you love is a joy while you’re working and afterwards as well. I’m so happy you felt that way and it comes through loud and clear every time you talk about it.

      Thank you, Janet. I hope to keep it interesting and not repetitive.

        It’s not at all repetitive, Allan, except in the love you had for the job. I’m great with that.

      Thanks, Carol. I made a pre-meditated decision to enjoy every day there, and it paid off with a lifetime of wonderful memories and relationships with coworkers.
