Floating Cranes in Japan

Almost everyone in construction has a fascination with cranes. The beauty of their operation and the amazing tasks accomplished with the crane amaze me. Here are some photos of floating cranes in Japan which I thought you’d enjoy. You can see more here.

The size of this floating crane that is setting a bridge section is hard to imagine from the first photo, but the second photo gives a sense of scale.

Of course, you can’t show photos of cranes without showing a couple that have fallen over.

I hope you take some time in this Thanksgiving holiday week-end and remind yourself about the things for which you are grateful. Family, friends, work, health, skills, and so much more bring meaning and purpose to our lives. Please don’t take your blessings for granted.

I’m off to sit in the woods and watch for deer. Well actually, I mostly sit and read and daydream. However, if a big buck has suicidal tendencies and makes enough noise that I hear him and waits long enough for my to get my rifle situated, then maybe, just maybe, I’ll be eating venison next week.
