The Crusher

I’m not sure what it is about big construction equipment and HDR, but I’ve been on the lookout for a cool piece of equipment to bracket since I started with the HDR thing. I’ve mentioned before that I live in a fairly new suburb of Calgary so there is still quite a bit of construction going on…which means plenty of large yellow equipment is lying around not being used on the weekends just begging to be photographed. So, this past weekend I did a quick lap around the neighbourhood on my way home from a downtown photowalk and came across this bruiser of a machine sitting on an empty lot between two finished houses. I like to think it’s main job is to crush whatever happens to be in it’s path with those giant teeth mounted on the front cylinder…it’s a pretty cool machine.
