"Will someone throw me up a CocaCola? I'm not sure I can get down from here." Actually from where I was with my 300mm telephoto, I could only lip read. He may have been telling someone twenty stories below to bring up a spanner which he dropped.

Wonderful photo Ian. Good you saw this and caught it.

Greetings, Mogens, Denmark.

It was quite remarkable to watch him. He must have given up hope on someone coming up, so he climbed down - all the way....at the end of the day he went home to a cold coke.

This is CocaCola building a new electronic warehouse, but where the palettes of coke will be stored and retrieved I'm not able to answer.

Thanks Mogens for your appreciation. They are probably going to build another one of these in Hamburg and/or Copenhagen!!

Really funny!

I am glad the humour goes across cultures, Majlend!! I guess it would have to being CocaCola humour.

G'day Ian, Great shots of the new warehouse at Northmead. I too have watched in amazement as this place has taken shape.

Thanks for your feedback. But with a name like Riggster it sounds as if you might be the guy up the ladder in this photo!

I guess I must take the camera back now that it is clad and painted. And I think I need to be taken on a tour to have its internal workings explained.
