Three is a crowd right😉.. •
The more the better. Managed to catch this jungle of metal today. My favourite one is the middle one. The counter weight looks like it would cause most destruction if it fell.
Did you know sometimes it takes a crane to build a crane? In order to set up the much larger crane, we pull another crane in to help lift pieces. It’s a cool process to watch, and it also makes me think about how like this crane, I wouldn’t stand as tall as I am now without the amazing people in my life that have supported me. So, I’m curious. Who’s changed your life for the better? Who makes you stand tall? Tag them, call them, text them, let them know!
#fbf to Seattle last month, with a blind woman I met once. Read full post and see full photographs at joshovaswitness.com (link in bio.) Abigail/Cranes in the Sky-
“I saw Abigail standing against the large granite walls of a Wells Fargo Bank. She had a cane, her eyes were open but looking away, vacantly. Her small white dog nestled in a basket below her walker. I turned to look at the people walking along the slopes on a downtown Seattle street. No one seemed to notice or be paying any attention.

My name’s is Josh- I used to be a social worker, you can trust me.” She said okay and we started walking inside.
I observed a tall bulky maybe 6’3 guy standing around the entrance but thought nothing of it. Abigail said, "There were three large men standing outside of the door and I felt like they were waiting for me to steal my money.” I told her that was horrible and sorry it happened. We approached the atm. She gave me her debit card and PIN. I type it in select the cash and give her the six twenties it dispensed. She takes the money and thanks me. That same man had now moved inside and was wedging his way to the atm next to where she and I are standing. He seems perturbed. I told him, "Sorry, she’s blind and needed help." No response. Fucking prick.
We leave the atm and I asked her if she has a roommate or someone who sees her regularly. She said she lives alone...” Read full post, “Abigail/Cranes in the Sky” at joshovaswitness.com (link in bio.) #blog#seattle#glaucoma#cranesinthesky#solange#blind#compassion#travel#socialwork#art#roadtrip#democrat#writersofinstagram#blogger#vote#instagay#queer#photography#disability#disabilityawareness#instagood#life#hope#pikesplacemarket#ferriswheel#citylife#igers#specialneeds#photooftheday
