The Art of Pouring Concrete

by

The photos below are of Dave Harland and/or his crew. Dave is the owner of Harland Concrete & Construction* out of Perry, Iowa. Bill and I found that Dave and his crew are exceptionally reliable in all aspects of the job: workmanship, efficiency and timeliness (even with the wet, cold spring), safety, communication and confidentiality.

In the first photo, Dave is at the left. The third and fourth photos also include Dave. In the fifth and sixth photos, Dave is in the middle.

Hamilton Redi-Mix of Jefferson and Boone supplied the concrete.

*At the “Gallery” link at the Harland Concrete & Construction web site, you’ll see photos related to not only concrete work and construction but also their snow removal and metal fabrication.

**The first two photos were taken with a Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM lens. While I wish these two photos were more crisp, I’ll take them! The last six photos were taken with a Canon EF 135mm f/2L USM lens. For one or two of the photos I slightly adjusted the levels in Photoshop.

    I enjoyed both the cement and corn descriptions and photos. In both cases, something is growing. Last summer I took pictures of corn in my field, intending to capture several stages in the growing season. I started on May 9 and 22. My last pictures were on July 7 when the corn was way over my head.
