Ultimate Blog Challenge April 2012 – Day 1

People at Work

I’ve always been interested in observing people at work. Here when I say work, it could mean anything they are doing with utmost care and concentration, a daily routine of theirs they do with expertise. I love dexterous hands.

One of the first I stayed and stared observed  in a public place was at a circulation library I frequented back at home, during school days. There was this man sitting in a corner, covering books with plastic sheets. A young thing then, his desktop was stacked with some neatly cut rectangular sheets in different sizes,  a bunch of sellotape rolls, a pair of scissors, a paper knife and the books he was about to cover them with. The covers came out as if they were part of the books from the day they set out of the print shop. As if laminated. Not a wrinkle to show it was a jacket, nor a sello tape sticker in sight to show it was stuck on to hold behind the covers and minimal use of the plastic sheet. 

These ladies up here, are artists I found them in a cave… yes, their office is a cave where they make pottery to maintain the coolness in the atmosphere.

Spotted n shot: It could be either AB or me as we stood there and admired them working — painting their plane shapes and bringing it life with colours | Location: Turkey, Cappodacia | where each village or town we passed by had a pottery culture of their own | The object: Hittite Wine Pottery Jugs
