Pic of the Week: I Don’t See This Every Day

I pretty much see the same thing every time I look out of my office window.  Except one day last week! That’s when I glanced out and saw these two men working on the roof of the Jefferson Building.

This photo makes the photos in two previous Pic of the Week posts – one of a sunset and another featuring a  view from my office – look tame.

    But where are the blinds from the previous pics?! 🙂

    Thank you for sharing,
    But what makes it special!
    I see such situation of people working while hanging on something almost every day.

    Interesting photo.

    Especially interesting is that safety screws are visible for the workers to hook their harnesses and lines, AND they are not being used.

    Does OSHA know about this company?

    Freya – You know I wondered about that too. The only reason I could up with is that because I had zoomed in so much and stood in the exact right spot they weren’t captured.
