Friday Photo: Look Out Below!
When you're used to seeing cranes spanning the horizon and construction workers scaling scaffolding wearing safety harnesses and helmets, seeing a construction site like this can be a little jarring. That was the reaction of this week's Friday Photo winner, Jean Gratz of Charlottesville, who snapped this picture earlier this week in Tanzania. Gratz writes:
This photo was taken on Sunday Sept 21 2008 in Stonetown, Zanzibar. My travel partner and I arrived and planned to wander around. We saw two guys with a long slim pole and were very curious what it was to be used for. When we returned a couple of hours later, this scaffolding was being erected, lashed together with rope. Having worked in the safety field I can imagine what OSHA would have to say. I guess risk is relative.
