I thought you might like to see the Seattle Art Museum's 48 foot high animated "Hammering Man" as a follow up on yesterday's "Coffee Drinking Man." Hammering Man actually hammers four times a minute except at night when he rests. He also gets Labor Day off every year, but this year he's been broken for the last month or so, so is getting a good sabbatical and just taking in the view, posing for photos and the like :-). There are other Hammering Man installations around the globe. The one in Seoul is the tallest at 72 feet, and there are many others of varying sizes in Frankfurt, Basel, Dallas, NYC, Gainsville, Minneapolis, La Jolla, and Los Angeles. This is the 10th in my iPhone Wednesday series, where I take and edit the shot using just the iPhone and its applications. The fun lettering is a photo app called "Nabbed."

Well, everybody gets tired after a while. I remember once before he had a problem with his arm.

I like 'Nabbed.' Will check it out.

I have always liked that Hammering Man. They had better fix him fast. MB

I just saw the one in Basel and did a double take! I didn't realize there were others.
