construction worker

On a cloudy day, the netting obscures even more

曇りの日、ネッティングのために暗くなります。二番目に高い階と、間に、作業員が立っています。下に、シュロのヤシの木がいいコントラストを作り出しています。

If you look carefully, you can see a worker in the middle of the second highest floor. I also like the contrast between the construction materials, the over-loaded electric pole, and the volunteer palm tree that rises out of the parking lot.

Construction workers have replaced plants outside our apartment

今ベランダで植物の代わりに、作業員の人たちがたくさん居ます。たまにうるさい音がしますけれど、計画的に仕事をして、礼儀正しいです。中で見ていないふりをします。まるでいつもと変わらないふりです。

No one likes construction. However, the workers are extremely organized and polite. When they pass by, they pretend not to look inside. And we pretend not to see them.

Construction worker poses on top of truck, in front of his job site

 毎週、現場を通りかかると、同じ青年がいつも声をかけてくれました。仕事にとても誇りを持っているようでした。

For weeks, each time I passed the demolition site, the teenage worker would greet me. He seemed eager to pose for photographs. Here he is on top of the truck that hauls out metal scrap.
