August 8, 2012, with the thermometer in the low 30s and the sun ablazing, it seemed to be the perfect day to get out of the comfort of my air conditioned windowless office and snap a few pics with my cell phone while accompanying my one man video crew to capture some construction video. To see more pictures, check out our various photo galleries on our Facebook fanpage.
