I didn't think of this as funny when I took the picture and entered it. This is my neighbor's house. I knew I wanted to walk around and take a number of pictures, looking for a composition or perspective of at least mild interest. I didn't feel I could do that without having the permission of the workers. I had no interest in showing their faces - on the contrary. So I assured them that I would not; my Spanish is limited to say the least, so I spoke English, but the guy I talked to said he understood, and he explained to the others.
Now I can see the humor others found in their positions . . . but I was just in awe of their ceaseless, efficient movement. There were maybe half a dozen men. They started at 8 a.m. and finished before 4 p.m. and that included everything from moving materials to the roof (a two story house with slopes from gradual to very steep)and yard clean-up afterwards.

Hate the processing, love the subject and composition. Subject and composition win out.

Those guys will suffer in old age, if they live that long.
