LOL Happy that your are happy Wendy :)

cool capture Wendy, well done! Reminds me of an illustration in a Jules Verne book I used to have as a kid :)

Dean, you've made my day! (Night?) I was going for a Jules Verne/steampunk-y feel with this series. I knew it was what I wanted as soon as I spotted this concrete block plant sitting in a vacant lot. Really -- I can't tell you how excited I am by your keen powers of observation -- thanks! :-)

I operated a Container Crane (Dock Shipping) and a Whirly Crane (my Favorite) Although not quite as high up there as the Tower crane, I felt very much like I was flying, and an Ariel Ballet. Much coordination and motion sensitivity is necessary for these jobs. I will look around for my pics of them... Awesome work

If this is the first of a new Series, I can't wait to see more. I love machinery and moving things. I used to be a Crane Operator...Loved it! I also Love your digital work

Thanks so much, Dan -- glad you like it! The second one is already posted in my Photo-based gallery, where you'll also find a series of five Tower Crane images. I don't know what kind of crane you operated, but experiencing one of those skyscraper-height tower cranes is definitely on my 'bucket list'. I still have to pull over and watch, whenever I see one in operation; that giant, swinging arm gives me a thrill, every time! I love machinery and 'parts', too. :-)
