Roofer

I haven't posted a Minnesota worker picture for awhile, but an opportunity presented itself right across the street from my house. From working with Hispanic immigrants, I know that they make up a big percentage of roofers in our city. This is hard work! When I saw the truck pull up and overheard their conversation, I knew that I couldn't pass up the opportunity. My husband fled in the opposite direction as I approached the workers. All it took was a greeting, "¡Hola Amigos!" , and I got their permission. I still haven't taken my new camera out of its box and continue to take pictures with my dinosaur Sony Mavica, but it didn't turn out too badly!

  5. Come on Kate. You can do it!
    Your new shiny gum metric camera is waiting for you to shoot first fantastic shot.

    I admire your vitality to asking not yet known (to you) people to take shot for publishing.
    I can now understand the powerfulness of if your worker series. I like one you posted on other blog as well.

  6. It IS hot work in the south, that's for sure - but perhaps the weather in St. Paul is cooler and allows workers to enjoy some comfort from the sun. I heard somewhere it's often about 20 degrees hotter on roof shingles than on the ground.
