And you decide to go on a trip to the supermarket in the morning, because it is Wednesday morning and you always go to the supermarket on Wednesday. This time I did not have my camera with me, because I knew I would be driving home and not have the opportuity to take many photos, my bad luck, but not quite.
As we turned a corner we were confronted with a building machine in the middle of the crossing. I was glad I was not yet driving. Mr. Swiss did mutter a few profanities to the effect of “what are these stupid men doing in the middle of the road”, using words in Swiss German which are in no dictionary. I was naturally annoyed without my camera – what a perfect photo, but then I pulled out my mobile telephone and shot a couple of photos, not really expecting anything spectacular.
However, against the odds of meeting a building machine and three men watching a fourth doing the work in a pit in the middle of the road, as well as just taking a chance shot with the telephone, I managed a shot, even with part of the machine. I have no idea what they were doing, but it looked quite intersting.
