Concrete Action


Concrete in wheelbarrows is past its sell-by-date - cranes took over a long time ago.


And it's hot stuff too!

Have a nice Week-End!

Amazing the changes that we all see around us these days! What great reflections! I surely would hate to have that tip over when I was walking by/under!! It does look hot with the smoke curling uu!! Hope you have a great weekend, Rune!

Dina said...

Great pictures that show how scary it is to be under one of those.

I do hope that chain doesn't break!

I've replied to your comment on HDP with a link to a video of a 1947 short film that includes shots of a steam train on the old line.

How things work--more and more that issue interests me. How was that decision about concrete made? With all the heavy machinery involved, I'm sure it's a long-term change.

Have a nice week-end!

Ya, for the BIG jobs, the the 'mighty' wheelbarrow is still a 'star' to me. hahahah

Most people do not think about concrete getting hot. I like the steam rising.

Viola said...

Tror faktisk jeg ikke ville gått under den gitt.. redd for å ha fått den i hue, hehe.. for den der virka veldig veldig tung ja!

men nå kom grand prix.. back to tv, (og jeg som til tider hater tv)
:))

kommer tilbake til bloggen din igjen senere, sikkert en god del jeg har gått glipp av her :)

ha en finfin lørdagskveld! :)

Tøffe bilder ... ser ikke helt trygt ut, men jeg regner med at HMS'en er på plass :)

God ny uke!

Better not stand under it; a concrete bath is not how you want to start the day ;-)

Times change but concrete is still poured to put up buildings.

Lew said...

Love your blue sky! When I was working closer to Washington, DC, I saw a lot of those buckets as the area was filled with high buildings. Here in Frederick, I see more of the trucks with a big hose and pump on the back to get the concrete poured. No more wheelbarrows here.

Petra said...

We still use a wheelbarrow for transporting concrete in our garden but well, it's not representative industry use. :)

I like the technical symmetry of the first photo... :)

Anne said...

Jøjje min håper du sto et godt stykke unna Rune!!!

EG CameraGirl said...

I hope it was secured well and didn't drop!

Great shots my friend, freezing and snowing here.

Rebecca Jerdee said...

ooh, late on arriving here for the action...coming up on another weekend! Happy Valentine's Day, Rune!

Really? concreet hot? Never new that. I thought it's just the dust swirling when the crane moved the basket. uh...another lesson learned.

Tøffe motiv! Ekstra stilig det siste med "rykende" tønne :-D

Bjarte Wergedahl said...

Ja, det bygges "overalt". Stilig med kontrasten mot himmelen og røyken fra beholderen.
