Lots of work!

What did you do????

Fascinating. And just the other day they started a new twin home down the street from us using that same way of bringing concrete mix from a truck to it's destination. I'd not seen that before. Works pretty slick!

In his frustration he's probably thinking, "must you document this?"
Interesting photo story VP.

Boise Diva said...

Well, oops!

Gunn said...

Gosh!
I guess that will take some time....

I had to laugh. I guess they didn't want that documented, did they? And by the way, there are some nice reflections in the bottom of the canal!

VP said...

@ tapirgal - He knew I was there taking pictures... This crash was a minor glitch quickly fixed.
Since the start of the works everybody on site has been very patient and helpful with my efforts.

Steffe said...

Great to see. I have a thing for construction site photos.

Wolynski said...

Almost ready? Oops.

Maybe that cement wasn't quite mixed.

brattcat said...

Oops. But how exciting to see this part of the canal so close to finished.

JM said...

LOL! What have you done? :-)

Lois said...

Oh no! Maybe they were looking for someone to blame!

joo said...

You mean that you did something wrong?!How could you:)

Halcyon said...

Were they trying to say that the problems were because of you?

Hmmm...

Dina said...

The first 3 photos I was thinking, how lucky you are they let you watch them. Lots of workers get nervous when you watch them work.
Then the last picture--maybe it IS bad luck to be closely watched.

Great documentation! Fun to see how things progress.

As long as they didn't call the carabinieri, you're fine.

Kaori said...

Uh oh! Maybe he's trying to blame it one you :)

Hilda said...

He probably wanted to ask you not to show anything about the error, whatever it was. :)
