Sparks were flying!


I snapped this man working in an underpass of Kreshatic Street. The laws must be very different in Ukraine compared to North America for construction. People operate heavy machinery and large trenches are dug to access underground pipes right out in the open. Barriers are rarely set up to keep the public at a safe distance. But for the curious, it's nice to be up front and close to the action.
