Week 44 – #16 Manual Labor

on May 26, 2013

I had a time time trying to think of what to photograph for manual labor.  I drove up to Pinellas to a park where they were doing a Fire Truck pull.  I had never seen of a Fire Truck pull, so I needed to check this out.  

This is an annual event to bring notice to the need for blood marrow donors through the BE THE MATCH FOUNDATION.  Teams of 6-8 people compete against each other. Each team must pull the truck over a set distance and the team with the best time wins bragging rights, trophies and medals.

These are everyday men and women who do this for a great cause and the competition is very strong.  A fun event to watch (no manual labor for me).

    You surely captured the theme here. That is some serious manual labor.

    This is definitely something you don’t see every day, and you captured it so well
