It's a big job



But somebody has to do it. These guys were spending their weekend pressure washing the 22 story Capitol Building downtown in preparation for the beginning of the Florida Legislative session which starts next week. There was another crew working on the other side of the building. The small dome in the first picture is the roof of the House of Representatives office building. There is an identical dome on the other side over the Senate office building. Two small domes on either side of a tall building. Let's just say references have been made to this configuration before and leave it at that. If you would like to see a better picture of the whole complex for the full effect and read the story behind how it got built, go here.
Linking to WEDNESDAY AROUND THE WORLD.

I envy the people that do this type of work. It is something I could not do myself.

This is a never ending work, when you have finished you can start all over again!

Sandra said...

this is my first viewing of this building and the one from yesterday of surpreme court. i did pop over to the link and see what you mean... that is one job i would not do for any amount of money. SCARY but necessary.. it is not a very attractive building but our County Admin building is really ugly, similar to this but not as tall

Sylvia K said...

Nope, I couldn't do it either!!! I got dizzy just looking at your great photos!!! Hope your week is going well -- stay close to the ground!!

We see that done more often from spring through fall, but occasionally even in winter, there might a crew doing that on buildings here too.

RedPat said...

You wonder what their first day on the job must have been like! And whether they are still a bit nervous?

VP said...

Not sure I can do something like this now, but I did something alike when I was very young...

Birdman said...

I said this before. One job I would definitely pass on.

Actually with a proper harness, I wouldn't mind. Nice view too!

Tanya Breese said...

Gunn said...

Wow, that is a type of job I could not do.
