For instance; it will be as well to remember that the first series of six photos depicting the excavator driver, participating in some well-earned relaxation, is in direct contrast to the fact that this man is probably the person obliged, because of his job responsibilities, to carry out the loin’s share of the dredging work.

A long haul, with a lot accomplished.
