Cranes in the Wind

Cranes, Porta a Mare, Livorno
New buildings at the construction site of the Porta a Mare (Gate to the Sea), seen from the swing bridge: the three cranes are pointing to East.

The same place two days after: the cranes are looking to West now...

Happens here every time we get a major storm like yesterday. I have a friend who never refers to them as cranes but always as weather vanes for that very reason. :-)

Not something I get to see in my small town!

I'd like to drive one, just once.

I think it's a sign the economy is getting better and it's great! :)

Looks like major construction with those three large cranes. Your two photos work perfectly together.

Lovely shot! I think that in Lisbon there's a crane wherever you look!...

Fun! Sort of like they are dancing.

It's good you gave an explanation. Otherwise, I would have believed that you waited for the wind to blow, and turn the arms of the cranes in the opposite direction:)
