I Shall Return

"Lunch Atop a Skyscraper", Charles C. Ebbets (1932)
I had this picture in the first life tab on my profile in SecondLife almost from the start. I cannot remember if I still do, but I think so.

The picture of the Mohawk construction workers taking a lunch break out on a beam has fascinated me since the first time I saw it. It´s not only the fact that they are sitting there completely relaxed high above the New York skyline, but I also try to imagine the balancing acts they do when sitting themselves down or when they get up to go back to work.

All is well with me, I have just been enveloped in my first life the last days and too tired afterwards to blog or go inworld.

Normal services should - hopefully - be resumed during the weekend.

  2. That iconic photograph was taken during the construction of the Empire State Building, which still to me is the world's greatest (but not tallest) skyscraper in the 1930's.
