Summer in the City

"Hot town summer in the city
Back of my neck getting dirt and gritty
Been down, isn't it a pity
Doesn't seem to be a shadow in the city
All around people looking half dead
Walking on the sidewalk hotter than a match head".

Joe Cocker - Summer in the City part lyrics

Photo of tired migrant labourers on their lunch break in Hamdan Street.

Aw, those poor chaps.

I know I sound like a stuck record, but...trees, trees, trees...we need to plant more.

Wow. They look really beat. They didn't mind being photographed?

Have a great weekend!

Many thanks for visiting Norwich Daily Photo and leaving your comment. Come visit again tomorrow!

Seems like a hot and uncomfortable place to relax!

Guyana-Gyal-The last ruler was big on trees. This current one is big on skyscrapers. I'll have a word.

Joy - They were so tired that none of them spotted me taking their picture.

Leif - It's here or nowhere for these guys.

My goodness! I'm glad I'm not one of them.

The third one from the right... is kind of different than the rest of his collegues.
