A towering crane and its reflection

(This photo is more fun when enlarged.)

Waiting for a bus at Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center is never boring.
I can always watch a tall crane in action.
Hadassah is forever building something.
The other morning I had a bonus--a reflection for James' Weekend Reflections meme.
And there were workers on that suspended scaffold on the left!
Oi, they are brave.
This new tower is going to be for hundreds of badly needed additional hospital beds.
Shabbat shalom, sei gesund (be well).

I spent some time taking pictures of a crane last week, but this is much bigger!

Malyss said...

Oh yeah, they're more than brave!! Your picture is giving me vertigo!

Wow. Glad I'm not up there, but wonderful to have the room for more hospital beds, always a necessity everywhere.

Hopefully, the workers of those high buildings won't need to be in those hospital rooms.

Dianne said...

Oh! That's a long way up Dina - well captured.

James said...

Cool reflection! This reminds of how much I used to enjoy watching cranes when I was a boy.

I guess we could say this photo is of Modern Israel, not Ancient Israel, non?

Pietro said...

Luckily nowadays cranes are driven from the ground, no more from the cabin on the top!

Dina said...

Pietro, I am happy to learn that a crane can be operated from the ground. But here we still have the old method: a man sits in the cabin on top all day and operates it.

Two cranes are definitely better than one.

I hope you have some nice relaxing time this weekend.

You found a great reflection, Dina... yet what caught my eye after I enlarged is how the crane is attached to the wall on the left by bars going THROUGH the building!

Dina said...

Francisca, yes, I too looked hard and long at that crane's anchoring inside the building!
