Renovations, Konakajima

Posted by
Daryl Johnson (Worcester Park, United Kingdom) on 1 March 2009 in Cityscape & Urban.

While the houses were being built across the street, the apartments in front of where I live were given a fresh coat of paint.

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!

This is a strong image! the blue and the textures from the tarp make it seem like a vintage photograph. The man in the corner of the frame really adds to the perspective.

Looks like a wall of fish/lobster tanks! Great blue motif in this one.

Cool shot. These tarps must be required by law. Every building site I saw in Japan had them. The same with flaggers. Even the smallest project had them with their flags and whistles. I did get to see a robot flagger on a highway project too.

@Steve Rice: I guess so Steve. The flaggers eh? I guess such work helps keep unemployment rates low.

I wonder why they are required?

@Twelvebit: I guess to stop debris / paint / whatever affecting the neighbours...?
