photoblog image Welding



A picture taken with the ND filter in place.


By Friday, I will be on the road again. So I am taking a break with this very industrious picture. If all go according to plan, I should be on the air by the 12th August. See you then.

They use welding masks!

[In Thailand they tend to just squint...]
Louis: He is an engineer and they tend to approach tasks professionally smile

Have a good time Louis, don't forget to take your camera!
Louis: Thanks Chris, it is already packed
Have a great trip. Bring back pix.
Louis: Thanks Jacquelyn and will do!
I'm very glad to see he's protected, Louis.

Happy trails until we meet again!
Louis: Sensible fella, Ginnie and totweerziens.
Have a great time and see you in Mid-August with beautiful pictures Louis!
Louis: I'll click away, Richard. Thanks.
I like the look of that 'white heat' Louis.
Louis: I believe the ND made it more 'visible', gutteridge.
Welding on straw is not a good idea but I guess nothing burned down while it was happening. See you mid-August.
Louis: This is a thin layer of natural grass in winter time. But yes, one should still be careful. Au revoir.

This is something I always wanted to learn... but you know how they thought about women as a technician yearsssss ago sad....
Great picture and I have seen people welding without masks..they are walking a dog now that sees for them....
Louis: Hah, you probably can still learn. But you need to stay in form - meaning you need to weld often. Yes, dogs are good.
He takes safety very seriously. Good candid shot Louis and enjoy your break
Louis: He should take it seriously, as he still has many years to go and children to rear. Thank you cornishmaid, I aim to enjoy it.
Properly equipped for the job. Hope you have a good trip
Louis: Thank you Bill, I will do my best

Look forward to your return, Louis
Louis: Thank you Lisl.
Just the place to weld on a pile of hay
Louis: This is a thin layer of natural grass in winter time. But yes, one should still be careful.
An urgent repair?
Louis: This is more construction work for the water tower we are building. This picture follows Monday's picture.
great capture of some high voltage welding Louis...
have a great holiday and catch up when you get back....petersmile
Louis: Thanks peter and I am taking my camera with me.
