Used a French bowline at work. Damn.

My father wanted to see a shot of the rope and hardware he bought me in action, so here it is. The knot above that PAR bar is a French bowline, then the line goes up through a sheave and down to where it's tied off to the scaff, allowing me to climb up and put the bar into the C-clamps that will ultimately support it. My friends all know the application I first learned the French bowline for. Too bad this is how I ended up using it in practice the first time.
