You Capture: Work

Last week I was at work and thinking about You Capture, so I sent Beth and email and was like "Beth, can we do "work" for next weeks You Capture?" and she said it was the greatest idea she's ever heard. OK, she didn't really say that, but we're doing it, aren't we?
Anyway, lots of people ask what it is that I do for a living. I got my degree in being a nerd (engineering), and I work for the City Public Works Department as an inspector, we mostly inspect water, sewer and storm lines that are part of the public infrastructure, as well as roads. I love my job and all the people that I work with, I like being mentally challenged every day and feeling like I'm actually making a little bit of a difference.
I got a few shots of this crew working on a new water line.
And, here is one of my "cube" where we have to do all the paper work that goes along with all the fun stuff (where I also got a chance to use my new lens!):

And now, you should all head over and check out Beth's blog and all the other You Capture sites!

so you're the one! ;)

these are great shots -- and i think it is cool to see what people do, and what they consider work.

Aha we have you to blame for this week's assignment j/k. I love hopping around seeing what everyone else does all day.

Great shots! I love the treatment and of course the fisheye lens! That's so fabulous you have a job that you love! I thought about doing a post on "work that pays the bills" and "work that feeds my soul" and my hope that one day I won't have to make that distinction. But I didn't really want to talk about my real work on my blog. So I did the meta post instead (the photo of a photo of a photo). :)
