Mellow Yellow Monday: Catwalk



Like a cat he stalks
across the lock’s golden walk—
then gates swing open.

  1. It must have been interesting to visit the Panama canal. While building the canal many workers died in malaria and the YELLOW fever.

  2. awesome shot… looks like this picture is taken from the top of a building somewhere around this view…

    mine is here

  3. Interesting shot, I have always wanted to see the canal. Thanks for sharing:)

  4. Thanks for the visit. I read a book about the Panama Canal, “Path Between the Seas” I think was the title. The author spent a lot of time describing the building of the Gatun locks. Fascinating.
    Thanks for showing a piece of the canal.

  5. Fascinating shot from a kewl perspective 😉
    Hugs and blessings,

  6. Nice shot of the workings at the Canal. I think even with those nice yellow rails I’d still be scared walking there.

  7. The locks on the Trent Severn Waterway use yellow too. I wonder if that’s a standard colour for canals.

    Love the poem and the photo.

  8. Oh nice entry and interesting.

  9. Very nice and interesting… It’s a little bit dangerous, one slip and accidents might happen.
