I am documenting the construction of the Grande Caribbean Resort, just up the street from me – here’s a view from my balcony. This morning I wanted to get some shots of the crane operators. What a job and getting to work is a bitch, at least for me it would be, having to climb up every morning would not be my cup of tea. But these guys climb up, look around and check out the equipment every day – sitting in that little box all day and having to climbing down for lunch and then back up afterward – I’d look for a ground job.
CAN YOU IMAGINE this happening in the States – about 2 hr. after I shot the above photos – it started raining – these guys are still up there. Wouldn’t you like to be in their Union – great support for their safety. Working here is hard, long hours and little benefits – and many times very, very dangerous. Lightning last night and early morning – thank God not now.
