Crane Your Neck

A  L  O  H  A !
 Morning Crane  
I like how the shadow
continues the line

" Sometimes life 
has a way of putting us 
on our backs
 to force us 
to look up.”  
                      Charles L. Allen 








Activity Up High

" Do just once
 what others say 
you can't do,
 and you will never
 pay attention to 
their limitations again. "
                                James R. Cook











Flying Dumpster

















Swinging High


"All growth is
 a leap in the dark, 
a spontaneous, 
unpremeditated act
 without benefit 
of experience. "
                 Henry Miller









Keep in Perspective

" Life is a tragedy 
when seen in close-up, 
but a comedy 
in long-shot. " 
                      Charlie Chaplin









Here is an interesting short slide show
of men up high constructing the crane!

Linking to 
Our World Tuesday


Thank You
For Reaching!
             Fondly, cloudia

I have to agree with Charlie Chaplin, most ardently.


By the by just for your information, that is not a dumpster, it is a tool box known as a "gang box," because it holds all the specialty tools used on a job and it's raised up like that to prevent theft--unless of course the crane operator left the keys in the generator.

Great quotes again today, Cloudia. I especially like the ones by Henry Miller and James R. Cook. Scary flying dumpster, though. ;))

I'm reaching with a great big good morning to you! I like that light reaching way up high, with a bird too!

This sky high crane makes my legs feel like jelly. I like the picture with the palm and the crane in the distance.
