Precarious Worker in a Yellow Jacket by taffy

Precarious Worker in a Yellow Jacket

Taken from the window of one of my neighbors who faces the opposite direction. She had invited me since they have a birds eye view of this 48 story building going up. Can you find the worker? And I think our balcony is scary!
OMG!!! No way would I be up on that ledge, far too scary not to mention downright dangerous. Fantastic shot, as per usual. And a very interesting perspective on the building under construction, a pov rarely attainable. Love the birds-eye view of the city too.

Fantastic picture.

Oh, my -- where's waldo in worker uniform! Stay safe!
April 12th, 2018  
I see him but mind boggling!
April 12th, 2018  
cant see him, awesome bit of construction
April 12th, 2018  
I think I do but it looks like the building is pulling up its pants and the crane is helping. Yes, I know a strange comment but, it does.

Great construction photo. There's no way I'd be on that ledge either.
April 12th, 2018  
I see him, only just, but what a great image! How cool that your neighbour thought about giving you the chance of a view from this perspective. That will be an interesting tower when it's finished.

An incredible shot of this skyscraper. I don't think I would like that in front of me.
April 12th, 2018  
Nice capture. But I couldn't find the guy in the yellow jacket =)
April 12th, 2018  
Think I see him - just looking for him gave me vertigo ! Great composition - love it
April 12th, 2018  
Yes saw him! So tiny and so high up!
April 12th, 2018  
OMG no way could I be up on that open side of the building! This will be an interesting skyscraper but I think it’s a good job it’s on the other side of your building as it does interrupt the distant view! Nice of your neighbours to let you get a shot of their view!

That man has nerves of steel!! Inside a building so high with no outside walls or windows yet. So James Bond!
April 12th, 2018  
Great photo -love the crane - but that worker is crazy....
April 12th, 2018  
Afraid my eyes can't spot him
April 12th, 2018  
Can't spot the worker, but that's a heck of a column of a building
April 12th, 2018  
Stunning , huge . As for finding the worker - there are two possibilities !! - on the base of the blue band and on the upright structure of the crane a bit lower down !
April 12th, 2018  
I can see him! What a brave man - makes me feel dizzy thinking about it!!
April 12th, 2018  
Wow, what a building :)
April 12th, 2018  
Not that kind of work I would be comfortable with...
April 12th, 2018  
Cool capture!

Talk about invasion of space, Your poor neighbour has definitely had the view ruined. A local celebrity steeplejack Fred Dibnah had no fear of heights. He died a number of years ago aged 66 after suffering from cancer for three years. He was a real character and became quite famous because of his work. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3R3-YwDZrzg

Oh my what a sky scraper! I guess it’s all in a day’s work to the men who scamper all over these buildings!
April 12th, 2018  
Yes I see him! Yikes, I hate it when David's working on a roof let alone having him on one of those sites! Good thing you don't have to look at that each day.
April 12th, 2018  
Oh yes and I'm glad that's not my partner.
April 12th, 2018  
Good heavens, so scary. What a job. Don't think I could do it.
April 12th, 2018  
Great capture of this construction site...Yes, I spotted him...scary high.
April 12th, 2018  
Oh, I think I see him. Looks scary to me. I definitely would not want to be up there.
April 12th, 2018  
I don't think they could pay me enough to work on the building. Standing on a balcony, ok. I'm sure the neighbour can't be thrilled that her view is spoiled.
April 12th, 2018  
Oh no!! Not for me!! Great shot though
April 12th, 2018  
Wow!
April 12th, 2018  
Rather him than me!
April 12th, 2018  
Dizzy just searching for him! So glad for you that this is behind your apartment, especially when I think of the view you showed us the other day.
April 12th, 2018  
Great capture. Wouldn't want that job
April 12th, 2018  
Wow, I so wouldn't want that job!
April 12th, 2018  
He's that little yellow dot right in the middle ? Must have some sort of safety harness on - I feel giddy just looking at your picture
April 12th, 2018  
Wonderful construction capture of the building of the high rise.
Wondering about the bottom part before the blue part, all the different patterns almost looks like a puzzle, is that the finished look?
April 12th, 2018  
Hope you get to take another shot of the finished job.
April 12th, 2018  
I can barely look at it without getting the butterflies in my stomach so he doesn't have to worry about me taking his job away. Yikes that is high. It definitely spoils the view. I guess they'll be waving to folks across the way when it's done.
April 12th, 2018  
Amazing construction and that there are people willing to work on it!
April 12th, 2018  
Great photo! I cannot find the worker, but the idea of him brings up memories of old photos of workers eating lunch on steel girders way up in the sky taken back in the 20s.
April 12th, 2018  
I see him and wouldn't change places with him for the world. I hope he is getting good money.
April 13th, 2018  
I don't think I could watch this out my window every day.
April 13th, 2018  
Ack! Love your view, but I completely identify with worker and the "stomach factor." :)
April 13th, 2018  
Yikes scary work!
April 14th, 2018  
Spotted your worker, seems like he is behind the blue safety barrier though. Like how you composed the image to keep the beam of the crane in the frame
April 14th, 2018  
Just at the base of the blue on the building? You wouldn't find me up there that's for sure xx
April 15th, 2018  
OMGoodness guess it's just another day at the office for him ... scary
April 17th, 2018  
@redandwhite Thanks for the visit, as always! The worker is the spot of yellow, sort of in the center, at the start of the blue construction zone. @joysabin I loved your description/interpretation!
