'Can I get a ride'

As I was photographing the salt flats over the San Francisco Bay, I noticed this helicopter flying people to their work places - the tops of the electric poles, all located in the water - and they were hanging down that rope! Imagine, the only way to get to your work is by hanging while flying, literally. Aerial image (shot from a plane at 1K feet).
