Mundane Monday Challenge: #124 The Crane

Road to Langendorf 26.08 (5)

It is building time in Switzerland. You cannot build in Winter because it it too cold and everything is covered with snow, so most of it has to be done during the Summer. No matter where we go we see a crane on the way and if you have the camera with you it is always a good opportunity for a photo. This crane was seen on the way to the store. The buildings have been demolished and now the new ones are being built. Astonishingly you no longer see people driving the cranes, it is all done by remote control. The wires behind the crane belong to the local railway. It is not a black and white photo, it just came out that way.

Mundane Monday: #123 Rope

Rope 20.08 (1)

Living currently in a building site, you get a bit of everything. We have had metal constructions, followed by styrofoam insulation and even some flame throwers welding this and that. Now we have rope for heaving objects to the roof. The roof is now finished, but the rope remains and is collected on a piece of scaffolding in front of my window. I could see the rope, but it was not in a direct line to my camera. However I lifted the camera and aimed, hoping it was the right direction, because I could not see what was in focus. I heard the peep from the camera telling me it was ready, so pressed the button and this is what I got. The things we do for a photographs.

Mundane Monday Challenge #122: Changing Trains in Zürich

Zürich main station roof

I am not as active as I used to be, just a golden oldie walking with a stick, but I can do it. Give me enough time. We had to change trains in Zürich to get the train to Schaffhausen and had so much time that I could walk to the next platform with Mr. Swiss and sit and wait for the train to arrive. There would have been a quicker solution, but I would have to be speedy gonzales to get that one. What do you do on a train platform, take a photo of course. I looked up and saw the windows in the roof of the platform, what could be better. Just a mundane photo on a mundane platform waiting for a train.
