  1. These cranes are very cool to watch in action.

  2. From the linked article:

    "in Helsinki in the late 1980s a group of Finnish art students were given permission at a construction site to choreograph the movements of seven tower cranes at night, lit with two floodlights and moving to the sound of ambient music. When snow fell during the performance it “seemed a magical sight” said one observer."

    I wish I could have been there to see that.

    The crane pictured here is helping to build a bridge over an inlet between the ocean and the bay. The old bridge runs right next to the construction site so I hope to see it working.
