He is looking like the Cat that got the cream, Lisl.
Lisl: Yes, he does look very satisfied, Ray
What on earth is he doing?!
Lisl: Just a demonstration of what the fire service could do - by Salisbury Cathedral
Quelle est cette étrange machine ?
Lisl: It's part of the fire service equipment - it can lift the fireman high up to windows to rescue people
Les travaux sur le parvis de Notre Dame de Paris je suppose ?
Une machine des temps modernes au secours d'une architecture des temps anciens.
J'aime ce contraste entre le moderne et l'ancien.
Lisl: Yes, it does look like it, jean. But this is an demonstration of work outside Salisbury Cathedral in England
The contrast is striking between this bright red machine and the beautiful architecture in the background.
Lisl: And enhanced by the sun, Marie, thank you
I see he couldn't resist smiling for you, Lisl. smile
Lisl: Not sure it was for me, Ginnie, but he was enjoying himself

Looks like he's being blessed too Lisl!

Great backdrop here, Lisl. I love the colours here. By the look of this fireman, there was not a real danger to handle?
Lisl: A demonstration only, Astrid. This was taken at Salisbury Cathedral

Oh well, they have to do something to put bread on the table. Otherwise he would cop it from the missus grin
Lisl: An excellent career for all the community

He looks very happy playing with his big toy.
Lisl: He does - he was enjoying it up there
Wouah !!
C'est un travail interessant
Lisl: Just a demonstration that day, Claudine
He clearly enjoys his work. The combination of red and yellow really pops!
Lisl: I liked the red and yellow against the ancient stonework

J'aime bien l'opposition entre la machine et ces vieilles pierres
Lisl: It is quite a contrast, JP

It looks like he is manning an anti aircraft gun Lisl.
Lisl: Oh, does it?

Instead of just showing off he could have spent time removing pigeon poo from the stone work ...
Lisl: There's a practical and positive thought, Richard

He looks too happy to be at work. smile
Lisl: Jut a demonstration this time, Andy
What a great image, with the bold red and yellows against the old stone........he looks pleased to be the subject, Lis smile
Lisl: It was very striking seeing the whole fire engine against the West Front
The colours are really great here.
Lisl: A very bright day helped, Care
Great shot Lisl, did you fancy a ride skywards in that by any chance.
Lisl: I certainly would have liked a close look at the high architecture, Brian
He looks happy in his work!
Lisl: He was able to show off for the day, Tom
it's a great contrast between the machine and the church Lisl... he looks quite comfortable working this crane....petersmile
Lisl: I think he enjoyed showing off, Peter
