Sharing with you photos of a day in the life of a night shift worker - that's me!
My "day" begins in the late afternoon.
Today I aimed my camera up to capture the airplane flying overhead.
As dusk creeps in, I start making dinner for my family.
Their "dinner" is my "breakfast"
I take a short walk to the corner store/bakery to buy a few things.
Freshly baked buns, half a dozen eggs, maybe a bottle of ketchup or a bag of potato chips.
It is 9 pm.
My last task for the day is to take the garbage out, then its bedtime for me.
3-4 hours is enough.
It is now 1:30 am. I leave for work.
No need to put on sunscreen.
No need for shades.
This creature of the night just wishes for one thing...
To go back to bed and sleep.
This is how our street looks like in the wee hours of the morning.
I have to do a 50 meter walk to the main road where I get a cab to take me to my workplace.
It only take 10-12 minutes to get there.
I have almost forgotten how it is like to get stuck in traffic.
And then I spend the next 9 hours of my life sitting on a desk, staring at a computer screen.
9 hours of listening to the agents' calls, and trying to stay awake.
It is 11 am.
Another work day is done.
I do my grocery tasks and start the journey home.
This is the best part of the day.
The next two steps I need to make to get in the house.
"There is no other feeling comparable to the warmth of being with family."
