Precariously perched on a plate

I just have to share with you a continuation of my ABC Wednesday - M is for Mound, Mounted and Massive.

After work Wednesday, I noticed that the dozer had been relocated to the north, almost into the corner. I got off the bus and walked back to that corner so that I could get a good look at the plate beneath the treads. I very much wanted to cross the street and get a really close photograph. However, the sidewalk is closed beside the excavation, affording no where to stand out of the traffic. Good sense reigned, and I stayed safe taking my photo from where I stood.

This does make a nice construction site photo. I enjoyed it and even more after reading your commentary.

Nice shot.

That thing is hanging over, you couldnt get me to work in it.

I still can't really believe the way it's balanced there! Surely it isn't safe. The driver needs danger-money!

:) So often we see these massive machines that we no longer 'see' them. Nice shot. I was tempted to take another photo of the huge orange cane that reappeared across from the opera. apparently work is done and now they are removing things from the building.
