Theme Day: Under Construction

The City of Hartford is building a new jail and police center in downtown Hartford, on a site north of the interstate highway that bisects the city.

On the first day of the month, City Daily Photo bloggers show pictures that illustrate the monthly theme.  For June, the theme is "Under Construction."  Click here to view thumbnails for all participants

Nice choice for the theme, Jack.

Jacob said...

Good photo, Jack. And now you'll have someplace to put up people who come to visit you from Florida!

Cezar and Léia said...

Great capture! I imagine to work in construction is very harsh, not easy at all!
Hugs and a nice weekend ( we are going out for some days)
See you next week,
Léia

Jacob's idea isn't too bad! Would this be our accommodations if bloggers visited you? The guys yellow shirt next to all the blue scaffolding really stands out.

My link to the portal for theme day photos does not work, hope you visit me anyway. That darn computer-voodoo is at work again!

Sharon said...

I love how you captured the worker in this photo!

Wonder if that guy feels like he's already in jail Jack? great photo.

Lois said...

I'm sure construction workers are glad to have any kind of work in this economy!

I love that pop of yellow in the picture! We badly need a new jail here too, but it's been under debate for years-- no one wants a jail in their backyard.

joo said...

It's a nice photo Jack - you'll have lovely brand new jail soon:)

This is the real deal. I hope it’s a tasteful building when it’s all said and done!

Mo said...

You'll have to give us progress reports on this site

Karl said...

Under construction, of course! Well done Jack.

VP said...

I like the intricate scaffolding and the minimal human presence in this photo. Great choice for this theme day.

Will the new jail hold 535 inmates?
If so, we've just found a new home for Congress!

«Louis» is for term limits! Limit them to two terms!
One in office, one in jail!

RedPat said...

Nice of that fellow to peek out the window - good one!
Re your comments of other spaces - next year I plan to leave the day open to explore in particular the private spaces like this office - places you don't get to a see.

Does that mean I'll have to bring Jacob oranges? :-)Excellent take on the theme.

Valladolid Daily Photo said...

Curious, I believe that the worker wears Brazil´s soccer shirt.

Jacob's comment made me laugh. Good picture for the day, especially with that guy leaning out. I admire construction workers very much, anyone with a specific skill like that. It would be nice to drive by a building and know you helped bring it to existence.

Randy said...

Can't miss that yellow shirt.

SRQ said...

That looks like a large construction site -- lots of workers must be happy. Sarasota just built a new police headquarters which opened last summer. (In case you were wondering...)

Nice theme day photo.

Sorry I'm so late! Terrific capture for the day! Always can use another jail it seems!! Hope your day has gone well, Jack!

Now that's what I call construction.No bad boy is going to get outta here... nice shot.

Cildemer said...

Very nice shot an great entry for the theme!
In Nancy, they've transferred all the prisoners to the new prison on the outskirsts of the city and they've just demolished the old one!

Nice composition and entry on the theme.

Very cool construction shot, Jack.

Yes, great choice. Nice color accent with the shirt and the buttresses
