Sure, no problem. Where do you want me to put this thing??
Oh I found myself down at the Birmingham Museum of Art again yesterday. This time I was photographing some heavy lifting. Really heavy lifting! Thanks to CraneWorks' generosity ( they donated most of the cost of the move) , the BMA was able to dismantle a massive outdoor sculpture and transport it across town. Why you ask?? Well the museum is loaning Zachary Coffin's "Antelumpen" to the Five Points West Regional Branch Library. A wonderful effort to place more public art in our community. What better way to share the museum's extensive works of art with its citizens! This was no small undertaking mind you. The rock base weighed well over 14,000 pounds and the 3 abstract antelope heads were made of 18' street light poles! It all went across town on a flat bed trailer. I'm still a little worried about how they kept that boulder from rolling off!
Today a few shots of CraneWorks' workers performing feats of great strength!
Of course these photos are dedicated to my crane loving friend Wayne in Vancouver. He's smiling big time over these!
This guy was amazing. Lifted that boulder with one hand!!!!
