Wot, no foreman?

I just like 'people at work' pictures and this is a great one.

Ah! The Great British Workmen! One working and three watching! Good to see that one has a seat to save all that tedious standing wink I jest; though the work of these skilled volunteers, our rich heritage is maintained for us to enjoy. You've done well to bring in plenty of light.
Les Auld: Thanks Alan, I agree we owe a great vote of thanks to theses volunteers for giving us such good photgraphic opportunities.

This is lovely: I can almost smell the oil & grease
Les Auld: Thanks Chris, there was a heady aroma around there, but I had put it down to the sewage works.
Great shot..showing us what goes on quietly. Good one Les.
Les Auld: Thanks Ron, plenty of behind the scenes activity at these places.
Absolutly wonderful. Great capture Les!
Les Auld: Thanks Richard, appreciate the comment.
Nicely topazed Les. works well here
Les Auld: Well spotted Bill, thanks for the comment.
What a lot of atmosphere you have got here Les. Loads of "stuff" all over the place, just like the old days.
Les Auld: Certainly would not be tolerated in todays work environment Brian, thanks for the comment.
Now this is really excellent Les. It instantly reminded me of a Stanly Spencer painting showing ship workers rivetting inside part of a ship. I seem to recollect similar colours and hardship.

Les Auld: Thanks Richard, had a look at Spencer's images and can see just what you mean, thanks for the comment.
I've just googled and the Stanley Spencer painting is called the 'riverters' part of an extended series he did on shipbuilders in Glasgow. The sort of thing he painted before he moved on to his more wanderous religious stuff.
Les Auld: Appreciate the update Richard, thanks.
