Re: Views While Working


This isn't the "homesick" thread, but, thanks for the pics Resta. Brings back a flood of memories.

Used to have a good friend who did ornamental plaster out of store front down in the East Vill near 7B's/Horseshoe Bar (the greatest bar in the history of mankind). It was our living room until they "cleaned up" the neighborhood and ruined it all.

Ornamental Plaster. A truly beautiful art thats becoming rare these days....cheers!

Not from anything current either...but a couple from the "commute" to work when I was doing camp setups.

Resta, got a nosebleed and a little dizzy at some
of your 'City Shots'.

At one point thought about jumping and then thought,

"Nah, why give the world the satisfaction?".....so I
crawled back off the ledge.

Alright. Seeing all of Resta's NY city shots has made me want to post some of mine. This job is on the 49th floor in downtown Chicago.

Burned up hillside. Part of this deck was burned in a wildfire, the people who now own this house actually lost their home in the fire, decided to buy this home instead of rebuilding the burned one. The deck is being built using 100% non-combustible products.

Re: Views While Working


Not breathtaking but the view of the bay, opposite the ocean at Bethany Beach, DE.
Messing around with a skylight leak on the roof of the third story roof.
