Here's the Church, Here's the Steeple

I have been taking my camera every where with me lately.  The other day I was lucky enough to have the long lens with me and got these great shots.  The church across the street from my work was getting a new topper for their steeple.  It was a fascinating job to watch.  I've been told that a local artisan repaired the original topper so it could go back up and maintain the historical quality of the church.

Its a beautiful church that is directly across the street from my office.

They closed the street so it was safe to put the crane in the middle of the road.

Sent the platform skyward

Opened the deck
And settled in to work
And I went back the next day to get the finished pictures.

The steeple is so tall, I couldn't get the entire church and steeple in the picture.
All done!


  1. cool....nice job on the steeple...they are not really easy to put in...i have seen a few disasters...ha

  2. I have never seen anything like that. Really neat that you were able to watch!

  3. I am so glad they restored the original "topper". That working platform is amazing.


Leave me some seeds
