Room with a view

Ever wonder what the view from the top of that tower crane on the 351 Water Street construction site looks like? The best view in St. John’s belongs to the crane operator on this project. We did this shot from just below the operators booth approx 75 meters (and a 20 minute climb with gear BTW) off the ground. Now that we’re back on this project in real time (not just with time lapse cameras) we’re looking for the perfect day to do some photos from the boom. It’s a unique view of “The Bowl” that only a couple of people will ever experience in person. Photo by Greg Locke © 2012

We’ve finally had a chance to get back to our project at 351 Water street this week. Had a great day with the iron workers at the 8 story level. …GREAT VIEW!!

The time lapse cameras are still chugging away nicely thanks to Panasonic, Manfrotto and Kata but we needed to catch up on our still photos as the erection of the steel for the top section has been underway for a few weeks now.
