Scaffold Death Wishes
November 3, 2010 | Comments (0)
In the first two men appear to be erecting the scaffold safety gear is non-existent with a pair of shorts being the only garments each is wearing. One of the men clearly fancies himself as a tight rope walker and is balancing on a galvanised scaffold tube.
In the second example three men are working on a façade from a scaffold that looks as though it is only partially erected. Starting from the left, the first is standing on loose planks on the frame any one of which could tip or slip. The second takes it a step further and while he has a slightly more complete set of planks is standing on some sort of box in order to gain a little more height.
And finally we have the piece de resistance the third man has just one plank and is working from a kneeling position pointing the wall, his bucket of material is also balanced on the plank and looking likely to drop onto a passing pedestrian at any time.
As if all of this was not enough the space under the scaffold which is open to anything the men drop is a designated pedestrian walkway.
Definitely a couple of solid entries for our Death Wish series.
