Photographer's Note

Asleep at the wheel...
Behind the wheel of sleep...
No sleep 'til Guilin...


People in China seem to have a knack for naps. In between jobs, or just when work is low, sometimes just for a couple of minutes, many people have a short power nap.

It seems sleeping on the job can be OK. Maybe it is healthy. It probably depends on the job you do, but still...I'm jealous sometimes.


This picture was shot at a bus station. We were in our bus waiting for it to depart, the driver in the bus next to ours was having a power nap, waiting until it was time for his bus to depart.


"Everybody seems to think I'm lazy
I don't mind, I think they're crazy

Running everywhere at such a speed
Till they find there's no need (there's no need)

Please, don't spoil my day, I'm miles away
And after all I'm only sleeping"

- John Lennon



PS: I believe one shouldn't really take pictures of people who are sleeping,
but sometimes I make exceptions. Sometimes.
