If he falls who will catch ?

Posted by
Doug (Burnham-on-Sea, United Kingdom) on 10 March 2015 in Documentary & Street and Portfolio.

Spotted this guy working on this scaffold in Looe Cornwall, looking at the signs below him I wondered if he would land in the Fishermans Arms, the Smugglers Cott or just drop into the Coffee Shop for a drink.
Happy Silly Tuesday

Making an effort to return to AM3 after a bit of an absence, it's really nice to see photo's from all contributors and I will try to comment when I can. If I offer criticism I do so only to help and I do not wish to cause offence. My photography tends to be from my travels, as well as my passion which is wildlife and landscape. I hope you enjoy what you see.
Thanks for your comments I'm really grateful for them and welcome constructive feedback.

Strewth . . I might prefer hitting the tarmac to landing in a fisherman's arms ! He sure looks headed for a short career.

Isn't this how they built the Tyne Bridge and many others before the Elfin Safety army took over?

That is too funny! A great find Doug! I certainly would not want to be hanging out over the road like that. There should be a mattress or something down there! Happy Silly Tuesday!
