Skywatch Friday

We're about halfway through a $508 million renovation
of the Brooklyn Bridge.  ($30 million of that is part of our
share of the government's $787 billion stimulus package.)
One of the people who's been put to work with that
money is this "well-balanced" fellow who was nice
enough to pose for me one morning.  Don't know what
they're paying him to climb up and teeter on the very outer beam
of the bridge like this—how much would they have to pay you?

[To see more Skywatch, go here.]


  1. Meaningful post for this Friday.
    I do not know how much they got to pay me to climb up like that.. I am not rich but I feel contented with what I have now. Maybe, if emergency things happened which need a large amount of money, I might consider to climb up la... hahaha...

  2. Yeah, money is never enough. Just need to tune our mind to live moderate.

  3. Excellent shot! I don't do well with heights, so I don't think you could get me up there.

  4. Lovely blog; I'm a new follower...♥♥

  5. Great shot. You don't see often people at work. If it is a real skywatch I don't know. The attention is to much on the main subject but it is a nice portrait and so more people can enjoy it. Well done.

  6. Enough euros for a Paris apartment, that's how much! Love his pants. I think this guy has painted a few bridges in his day. Great portrait Alexa!!

  7. Wohoo he is too nice to pose. ^_^


  8. Wow beautiful portrait Alexa. I love that!

  9. Great shot of this Bridge Painter
    as for his pants he probably got them stain in just 1 to 2 days I'm a bridge painter an we use 2-3 pair of pants a week.
