Man At Work... smile
Picturit: smile... you nailed it smile
Astrid.
Oh! Great shot, Astrid!
Picturit: I had never seen this before.
Astrid.
This was really something to see, wasn't it. We could tell he wasn't a homeless person, so we finally figured out what he was doing. Leave it to the Dutch!
Picturit: I had never seen this before, Ginnie. I so hope he found something he could make money with. He was there for quite some time, when we passed this spot on the way back he was in the other container.

Haha - you were there at the right time with your camera!
Picturit: Always be prepared and keep the camera ready to 'point and shoot'...

Well I suppose you could be pleasantly surprised about what's in there Astrid

Or not..
Picturit: That is always a 50% chance and I hope for him he found something to sell.
Astrid.

Good on him I say, but I hope he does not fall in Astrid. I like the three kisses on the container.
Picturit: The three 'kisses' on the container have a true meaning. I copied and pasted this from the WIKI: During the 1941 February strike in Amsterdam, for the first time in Europe, non-Jewish people protested against the persecution of Jews by the Nazi regime.[3] Queen Wilhelmina of the Netherlands wanted to remember the role of the citizens of Amsterdam during World War II and created a motto consisting of the Dutch words "Heldhaftig, Vastberaden, Barmhartig", meaning "Valiant, Steadfast, Compassionate". On March 29, 1947, Wilhelmina presented the motto as part of the coat of arms of Amsterdam to the city government.[1]

Never will I forget the emotion that overwhelmed us, when eyewitnesses first notified us in London of how the entire population had actually turned against the inhumanity of the cruel tyrant.[i][3]
—Wilhelmina of the Netherlands
The original meaning you can find in this link.

PS and no he did not fall in, he knew what he was doing......
He is kneeling on the LARGEST grater I have ever seen!
Picturit: But then we have the biggest cheeses too grin grin grin.....
Astrid.
One wonders just what he is up to.
Picturit: To try to collect some bottles with refund to take back to the store and collect some pennies... maybe.
I think he does this more often and know what to look for.

That looks a bit hazardous, I hope he doesn't fall in!
Picturit: Indeed, Cherry. He did not fall in though, I think he was a regular here and knew what he was doing.

Everything has a value, albeit some of it quite low. I hope that the chap does not fall in.
Picturit: At some point only his feet peeped out. He was there quite a long time and I do hope he found some 'gold' for him to collect.
Astrid.
Great treatment, Astrid - I wonder what he was hoping to find!
Picturit: Thank you, Tom. My guess is that he found some bottles that he could get money for. Deposit??
Astrid.
"Carpe diem" seize the moment, but .. is not that then they have compacted it with the trash? smile
Picturit: I think you are right about the 'Carpe Diem'.. in this containers there are bottles and drink cartons, maybe he found some bottle that he could brink back o the store for some pennies..
Astrid.
Oh, this is BRILLIANT Astrid!!
Picturit: Robin, this was around the corner from where Ginnie use to live in Amsterdam and this guy was looking for something valuable he could sell. Half an hour later he was still dangling out of one of the containers. My guess is that he did well that day.
Astrid.
Here in America we also raid trash piles left on the street...
Picturit: I think 'jumping trash' is done all over the world. What might be trash for somebody might become 'gold' to the other.

How did I miss this yesterday, Astrid?? What a moment to catch!
Picturit: Indeed, we were just watching what he was doing and we kind of waited for him to fall in. Obviously he knew exactly what he was doing.
Astrid.
Hello Astrid, it's me that I thank you for being passed by mine, in any case it is not me that Claudio Mauri, it is hominimia, I also write small things, but only in blog.
Picturit: Hello Claudio, you are so welcome and thank you.
Astrid.
