Photographer & Submitter: Thiel Harryman

When Harryman saw a worker from Tank Builders Inc., Dallas, installing a staircase on the side of a fuel tank at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, he knew it had the curiosity factor that can make an interesting shot. Harryman, an avid photographer, is a project engineer for Underground Construction Co., Benecia, Calif., contractor on the $13-million tank-construction project for owner, Southwest Airlines. "He was building what looked like a stairway to heaven with nothing supporting it," Harryman says.
