Narrow work space limits his mobility

“When you reach for the stars, you are reaching for the farthest thing out there. When you reach deep into yourself, it is the same thing, but in the opposite direction. If you reach in both directions, you will have spanned the universe.” ― Vera Nazarian, The Perpetual Calendar of Inspiration

Sometimes major construction and renovation updates though broad in scope are limited in the amount of work space available to complete a beautification project. This bricklayer’s zone of comfort might seem overly compressed but his dedication to the job at hand and his overall professionalism provide the drive and the impetus for his continued success.

    • Thank you Lois. When I took the photos it was really hot outside. The sweat was trickling down his face and he was moments away from taking his coffee break. But he still made the time to chat with me and tell me how he felt about the work. A dedicated professional for sure. Enjoy the weekend. 🙂
