- this first shot is some participants learning how to tie back a wire rope tie back for a swing stage outrigger beam

- here the participants (well some of them) are learning how to correctly rig the suspension line for the stage on the beam.

from time to time I have made mention of teaching health and safety courses for my union on Saturdays and not having time to shoot.

I took my Fm2n (all manual 35mm) , a 50mm f1.8 Ai (all manual) along and rattled off a couple of shots to see how they might turn out. Film used was Ilford FP4Plus iso 125 and it was developed in Ilfosol 3 for 7.5 minutes at a 1:14 dilution

Wow, funny, I am also involved in OH&S as a safety coordinator (NCSO). Have you dropped someone over an edge yet to test their fall protection equipment?????

LOL- I assumed as much, although there have been a few participants that I would have been delighted to take them out to the 25' tower out back and let them experience the "sudden stop".
