Crane Story

A    L    O    H    A  !
Hawaii Skies

" Do not blame God 
for having created 
the tiger, 
but thank Him
for not 
having given it 
wings. "

Indian Proverb

 Honolulu Skies Sprout Reaching Cranes

" Each of us 
is carving a stone, 
erecting a column, 
or cutting a piece of 
stained glass 
in the construction of 
something much bigger 
than ourselves. "

Adrienne Clarkson

" If people only knew 
how hard I work
 to gain 
my mastery,
 it wouldn't seem 
so wonderful
 at all. "

 Michelangelo Buonarroti

I love how casual the man in red looks

" The most powerful force 
ever known 
on this planet is
 human cooperation - 
a force for 
and destruction. "

Jonathan Haidt

In one way or another, we all reach for the sky. I like the last quote.
Have a happy day.

Didn't know it took so many guys to operate a crane. Love the contrast between the ritzy high-rise buildings and the 2-story older apartments. And that overhang is made of clear material to keep the sky in view!

Too bad humans cooperate so often in opposition to some other cooperative.

I was thinking white longevity cranes, and instead it was an orangish construction crane!! Very fun. Loved the quote about tigers, and now I am pondering just why they DON'T have wings...
