i like the assorted bricks, Astrid - in the walls and in the stacks.
Picturit: This is the part of Amsterdam close to the city center and Rijksmuseum with the Night-watch.
Astrid.
Good capture, Astrid - what's on his feet?
Picturit: Thank you, Elizabeth. Most of these workers wear wooden shoes. Dry, protective, good to walk in the sand, good for the feet.

I suppose he is using packing sand?
Picturit: Absolutely and with this machine he drills it to a solid layer and can put bricks over it as a road.
Astrid.
Jolie scène de vie, on dirait qu'il a des sabots aux pieds.
Picturit: He wears wooden shoes, almost all streetworkers wear those, easy dry feet and protection.
Astrid.
This is one of those times when wooden shoes become quite handy. No "ouch" on the toes should a brick nearby fall! I love it (while we were in Amsterdam, right, not too long ago?).
Picturit: Indeed, we walked to the Rijksmuseum and they were renovating the streets.

I love your unassigned bin, Astrid - we never know what you will show next!!
Picturit: Thank you, Lisl. Even for me it is a surprise sometimes what I have in the bin... all week I post from it.

Oh, I like your 'Man at work' images! No ear protection? Yesterday I could have needed clogs, too, the paths were so muddy.
Picturit: Thank you so much, Philine. Very observant and he might have the small custom made earplugs... Clogs are great when it comes to mud...

Does Astrid get a headache when this machine is working? Your unassigned bin is full of delights Astrid.
Picturit: HA... no I am not, luckily. Sometimes even I am surprised what I have in that bin.. wink
Astrid.
I like his protective footwear!
Picturit: They are smart... don't ruin your leather boots in the sand.
Astrid.
If he danced hard enough in those clogs wouldn't that have been sufficient to compact the sand.
Picturit: HA... can you imagine all those men in one line and dance grin.... now that would be the picture.

Great shoes for working in the wet. A man only wears clogs when he is really working.
Picturit: You said it, Lois and I totally agree with you.
Astrid.
That machine has an interesting name...
Picturit: hmmmmm now that you mention it... grin wink
Astrid.
I'm surprised guys who use these machines don't en up with the shakes after a day of using one of them.
Picturit: Sure they feel something in their arms, however I think they do all kind of jobs and not this machine for 8 hours in a row..
Astrid.
Yippee for the unassigned bin! Always love seeing these guys WORK! smile
Picturit: Thank you, dear Robin. When I am on a walk in the city I am always on the look out of 'working men'. Yesterday I was in Utrecht at the railway station, I got many 'man at work' always a joy.
Astrid.
Courageux ce Monsieur ..
Belle scène de vie
Picturit: I think he knows how to control this machine and he wear clogs.... wink
Thank you, Claudine.
Astrid.
