I worked underground for many years - this shot is awesome - clear and well lit. No fog from the operating jackleg but its nice.

This is a great shot. I worked in the base metal industry for twenty-five years. Great memories.

Great work in an unforgiving environment. I was that guy for many years. Did you like absolute darkness when all the lights were off?

This is magnificent. (And PatrickHouse—I got to experience absolute darkness once—it was horrifying. You guys are amazing...).

Amazing, I felt if I was standing facing him rather than looking at a photo. Very envious.

Thank you, for the reminder of my growing up. My father was a hard rock gold mining contractor and later a supervisor/manager at now closed Homestake Mining Company, Lead, SD.
