A heavy load

This brickloader begged me to take his photo, so..... I see so many people here doing hard labor without much protection. Some just wear flip-flops while hauling bricks or moving large slabs of granite with crowbars. Watch your tootsies.

Oh, wouldn't OSHA have a field day here!

I love the rich colors. Must be so unusual to be asked to photograph people - so different from US & I would think even Serbia.
Word Verification: stali :)

We don't know how lucky we are to have employment laws. Great photo!

laws and wheelbarrows! How many trips did the laborer take, I wonder? I was used to seeing relatively unprotected laborers in Serbia - no hardhats, sneakers, - but this is a step further away.
