Well I will take a guess and say he is removing a bird nest from a cell tower. That's kind of a goofy guess but he sure doen't look like he is dressed for doing a job up there. Great photo!!! Thanks for sharing.

Terrific capture, Lily! Isn't it wonderful how many wonderful things we find in our worlds to share with others? Hope you have a great weekend! Enjoy!

Apparently he is checking some numbers with his list...
Intriguing!

Bibi said...

Ian's got a really good eye. Looks like he's trapped up there, although I know he isn't. What's he doing? I don't know--meter reader?

VioletSky said...

Whatever he's doing, it looks precarious!

Ann said...

what a contrast, new and old.

Abraham Lincoln said...

That is totally different.

bobbie said...

I suppose he's doing something to do with wiring. Ian does have a good eye.

Marlene said...

Very intriguing picture. No clue to what he is up to but it looks very scary.

Unusual SWF image - and a good one!
So what is that man doing?
«Louis'» acrophobia kicks in just viewing the image!

Unique entry for Skywatch Friday. Last thing I expected to see. I'd take a picture of the sky and post it but it's been gray forever. Not very picturesque! ~karen

I don't know, but I'm glad it's him and not me!

Have you ever been to a lineman rodeo? They're pretty cool. I don't think this guy is a lineman though. I've never seen scaffolding like that.

I wonder waht he was doing? Did you find out? Is that a crane? So many questions about your photo Lily! Good shot!

Alexa said...

I'll guess that he was ensuring that you and my mom and other good LIers get to have electricity. I echo what others here have said about Ian's excellent eye!

Jiggy said...

Looks dangerous, I wonder how you get into that line of work?

Lily Hydrangea said...

and the answer is...
this man is changing the letters on the sign for the movie theatre!
I think everyone was thrown off by the electrical wires right next to him. Also, he looks higher up than he actually is because of the way the shot is cropped.
Interesting, isn't it?
thanks for all of your good guesses! I find you all have wonderful imaginations.
: )

Now that's an odd shot! Great timing on your part! Thanks for dropping in at my SWF post. Enjoy the day.

Cool capture. This is a brave fellow, moving around up there.
