Photo Hunt Narrow

This week as I thought of the theme for Photohunt of Narrow I kept seeing these guys working on the wires because of the high winds we have been having here this week--- Because of those high winds these looked even more narrow to me--

as I watched them working so high in the air on this narrow arm I was nervous for them-- that they might blow out of their temporary ivory towers.

They were working high above the railroad tracks which are also narrow esp when you think of the weight that rides on them.

For Safety they had down these new narrow traffic cones-- At first I thought they were odd compared to there stout counter parts, but now I like them:> and they inspire me that even traffic cones can get thinner:>

All week I was hoping I could see this narrow truck we have seen occasionally--- I wonder how it can bare the embarrassment of being on the road w/ all the big trucks it is so narrow, and low and behold, I saw the skinny little thing yesterday while waiting for a train to pass.

This is the first time I see such a narrow truck. I did not even know it existed. Great shots you have here this week.

If you have the time, do check out my another interpretation at http://www2.crizlai.com/2008/02/02/photo-hunters-narrow/

I enjoyed all of your photos today but, that truck takes the cake. I haven't seen a truck that narrow or small in my life. I think that was my favorite pick of them all. Have a nice weekend. Happy Photo Hunting~

Those are wonderful--several of those shots are just perfect!

Carver said...

You got some great shots for the narrow theme. I don't know if I've ever seen narrow trucks. I'll have to keep an eye out for them.

YTSL said...

Great pics and interesting accompanying commentary. Re those narrow trucks: I didn't even know such things existed! And yes, they certainly do appear narrow... :b

Sarge Charlie said...

the truck is strange, is it a rolling bill board.

Utah Mommy said...

Perfect shots you got here, those photos are perfect for the theme. Have a great weekend!
NARROW FEED THE ROAD

julie said...

We have a lot of those trucks plying major highways here in the Philippines. I think these are great ways to do ads BUT they contribute to the traffic and the pollution, so I guess its not that efficient.

Great photo on the train tracks. Have a great weekend, Marcia :)

peppylady said...

I hear a lot about bamboo and I would guess it pretty strong and I would be afraid to walk across that bridge.

My picture is up for the hunt.

MamaArcher said...

great ideas for the theme, that truck is pretty funny looking!

A. said...

A great collection of photos there! I particularly like the one of the rails disappearing into the distance. That truck really does look odd:)

Dragonstar said...

These are great. Like everyone else says, that truck is really narrow - never seen such a thing before! The rails are a good shot, and I like the look of those new traffic cones - different. If you've had the type of wind we've had, those men had a hard job! Good collection, and thanks for the visit.

jientje said...

I'm sorry, I might have to repeat after everybody else but I just love that truck! I have never seen any like that before!

pinkjagxj said...

That "lift" looks mighty narrow and a bit scary to me. The narrow truck is way too funny.
Thanks for stopping by my blog and thank you also for the great quote by President Hinckley on your header.

Randi said...

I love the photo of the narrow truck!
It´s very windy here today (we have 25m/s) - I wonder what would happen if this odd truck was driving here now.
Thanks for stopping by my blog!
Have a happy week-end!

JC said...

Terrific series! They are all very good but the truck is the most interesting... very unique!

the teach said...

Incredibly narrow things, Joy! Wonderful!! Have a good weekend! :)

ellen b. said...

You found lots of narrow! Happy Saturday to you...

Jessica said...

Very narrow truck... We have those around us now, they are placing advertisements on them and driving them around. That is a different advertising concept. I also like the one with the railroad track...

Happy weekend!

FRANCINE said...

I like the second photo best but they're all great. We occasionally see trucks like that round here too: I wonder if they do get embarrassed!

Playful Professional said...

So how do you do it? You always come up with great pictures haha... and you always end up with a ton of visitors. I've got to give away things to get visitors!!
