Sleeping Beauties

At midday, the city is littered with labourers taking a siesta. Shade is so scarce that even the most uncomfortable of surfaces makes for an inviting resting place.

I remember one you took of workers in a park, but that was a much more pleasant scene.

If I were one of those men, I'd take a thin, rolled-up mattress and a small pillow to work. To prevent theft, I'd tell a terrible story filled with superstition and fear. hee.

Shade certainly looks scarce. It appears that he covered his eyes with his cell phone. Very interesting pic.

They need a porta-pillow!

Thanks for commenting everyone and you're right tapirgal, it is a mobile shading his eyes. What improvisation!
