Work
Posted By: sherrvonne, 12-23-2018, 09:11 PM

The challenge this week is to post photos of work. There have been several threads on What type of jobs we do. I believe I was the only one who posted domestic engineer. So I would like to see photos of any type of work, whether its household, business, construction, photography, just people engaging in work or even animals working. What work has caught our attention? I am posting a few examples that caught my attention because it was really very sad that our old oak had to be cut as the top had died out. The guys were nice and let me photograph while they worked and they got a few pics at the end. The challenge will close at Midnight on Sunday the 30th of December 2018 (Texas) CST. Winners to be declared the following day.


The fine print:

Every week, a new theme is picked and judged by the winner of the previous week.

Rules
1. Post ONE photo (max 1024x1024).
2. The photo must portray an interpretation of the theme.
3. Post your single picture in this thread and explain what motivated you to take the picture and/or how you feel it represents the weekly theme (especially if it's not obvious).
4. The challenge is interactive. Any response is welcome.
5. The judge will pick the WINNERS and choose one of them to select and be the judge for the next week's challenge.
6. This challenge runs for 7 days plus an additional day for the judge to choose the winners.
7. Any Pentax/Ricoh (DSLR) camera can be used as well as P/S cameras.
8. Pictures can be from any time frame, not just within the week of the current theme.
9. In case the winner of a challenge is unable to become the judge for the next challenge, they will PM the #2 winner for that person to be the judge.

Work or study, I presume. This is a b/w take on an older very noisy photo, the place was dim.

Great challenge shervonne. My neighbourhood and the places I visit in Toronto are dominated by construction. Trucks, noise, cranes, diversions everywhere you go. This was taken as a crane was being erected for a condominium project at the end of my street.

The photos are so interesting, as for the gardening I never heard of that museum until I looked it up, it made me learn something new.
The plowing, my husband’s grandmother had a little backyard vegetable garden in La Grange, Texas for years and up until the early 80’s the same man would bring a mule and plow the garden for her every spring.
Don’t we all appreciate a street free of trash?
The internet coffee place, I live in a small town and rural area, this is something I don’t get to see even in a local Starbucks. Lol.
Coffee is always necessary!
We have mounted law enforcement officers here except they wear cowboy hats with the tan uniforms and cowboy boots.
I find construction work fascinating although others find my homemade food just as fascinating, lol!
The downed electric reminds me what went on after hurricane Harvey in this area.

Sorry to be late with posting a winner, I spent all day consoling poor 12 yr old pup who was quite terrified over the all day fireworks yesterday and all night. But will get this done today.
