I think for most of the workmen, this will be a once in a lifetime job. Love the close-up and the copper is nice and shinny.
Larry Bliss: Good observation... There isn't much call for copper domes...

It's going to take a lot of polishing Larry!
Larry Bliss: A giant bottle of polisher stands at the ready...

Do you know if this is the final colour, Larry?
Larry Bliss: Over time, the copper reacts to the air and turns a lovely shade of green...
It's really moving right along, Larry. I'm glad to see the progress....!
Larry Bliss: I will try to keep up...
Wow, this really shows the size of the dome Larry, are you sure this isn't a Muslim church?
Larry Bliss: LOL... maybe one day it won't matter...

I hope you will have eventual pictures of when they lift and place the dome. I am interested to see exactly how they will do it.
Larry Bliss: If I don't get pictures, I will link to videos...
Parishoners must be excited about such an undertaking.
Larry Bliss: I am sure they are...
They seem to have dented it a bit around the bottom Larry
Larry Bliss: Oops...
i like the coppery tones, Larry.
Larry Bliss: Thank you, Ayush...
Looking good so far...
