Tom, Paco and Fons, I enjoy your totally different but equally inspired images!

Thank you Akira.

Paco, that corner is incredible, very abstract and soothing... :o

Sunday, the day off..
I don't think so ;) .  Road crew repairing the street in front of my house.  I did take them some bottles of water and thanked them.  In India, many folk only have Sunday off and many have no days off.
New lens and does not even need the sharpening I used , tiny.   Sony a7rii, Tamron 28-75 3.8 FE

Nice view of "men at work", Indian style... :-)

I see that double jack fills their heavy equipment needs. Good capture, Tom!

Many thanks Fons  :)
Jacques, just for fun (with Df, 70-200 f4) , how many electricians does it take to change a fuse (and one driving) ?  Shumacher had it right, the last thing India needs is more automation and Robots   ;) . Wjy have one person pushing buttons or operating a computer when four guys can do the job ?   Not sure if that is a first world, second or third problem ?  :(
Yup Carl, that double jack requires no external power other than what you see...

Cheers,
Tom

Adequate personnel on the job at public works projects seems to be a world wide phenomenon.

Indeed, and that tool in the driver's back pocket will no doubt do in a pinch.....
