    photographing tall gilded statue

    The project manager for the gilding of the Oregon Pioneer documents the process, taking these photos as it nears completion. For future reference the scaffolding setup was photographed as well. In 20 years someone will undoubtedly appreciate the effort.

    NOTE: The plastic sheeting has been opened at the corner to ventilate the workspace. The church seen far below offers the only clue as to how high this platform extends in the air.
