The construction site next to our apartment here in Marina Bay, Singapore is busy and noisy 24-hours a day. Lately, we have noticed an especially irritating noise that my wife quickly identified as sounding like a jackhammer. I didn't think so, because the nature of the sound seemed kind of different from the type of jackhammer I was familiar with--the kind that an big, burly construction worker positions under his paunch while he blasts away at a section of blacktop.
As it turns out, my wife was right, it was a jackhammer--but a variety I was unfamiliar with. Late yesterday afternoon, I noticed that one of them was busy dismantling a wall at a spot that looked to be in range of my 200mm lens, so I rushed to the 8th floor and took about 50 images. Here is my favorite of the bunch. Fortunately the work to tear down that bit of wall did not continue overnight, but it is working again now as I write this, so I can tell it won't be a very quiet Sunday at home.
