I took this in 1996 with my 35 mm Pentax and Tmax 100 film. I was attending the Art Institute of Seattle at the time and I was shooting an assignment I gave myself for class. The theme was men at work and I had been shooting for several days around the ship yards and construction sites but I had nothing I truly felt good about. Well one morning in the parking garage under the school I came across this welder working on a foot bridge. I immediately knew this was the shot I was after so I quickly turned my camera to the ground and based my exposure from the grass below and took this shot. Just a few seconds later and he came down from the ladder packed his gear and moved out of sight. I lost those negative and this is a scan I made a couple days ago of the only print I made and luckily still have.
