Drilling

Most people, when they first see it, assume this was taken underground or in some similar environment, but this is in fact nothing more than roadworks on Gibson Street in Glasgow's West End.

 

I was sitting in a coffee shop one evening when I spotted this scene unfolding on the other side of the window. I went outside and began taking some photo's, eventually realising that the best ones were to be taken behind the barrier. I asked one of the men if I could come closer and, with the shrug of the shoulders that suggests 'sure, although I don't know what there is of interest here', he agreed.
