Catching Some ZZZZs

While wandering around downtown last weekend I caught this obviously very tired gentleman napping by a fountain, oblivious to all around him. He was soon joined by his family who woke him up!

I wonder if he had a sore neck when he finally woke up. I'm sure I would have.

People who can sleep in such situations amaze me. Perhaps he suffers from narcolepsy. I knew a fellow who had that disorder and he'd fall asleep just about anywhere at any time.

Terrific slice-of-life and I love that fountain! The weather must be warming up, too, if someone can fall asleep outside and not freeze to death! :)

LOL Men falling asleep while waiting for women to finish shopping. I see this a lot in the malls!

Or as someone I know often says, "I'm just closing my eyes." :-)

Luis Gomez said...

I have seen this happen many times. ;)

Poor soul!

Andy said...

That's a feeling I can relate to.

That fountain is something. So cool!

EG CameraGirl said...

Wow! That's really tired!

I love the fountain. I'm like Lowell, I can't understand how one could fall asleep in such a place!

Jack said...

Karen has it right . . . the poor guy was bored waiting for his wife to finish shopping.

I do like that fountain... and quite a place to sleep in. The sun coming in really lightens it up.

What a nice fountain, and I bet that the filtered light of the atrium added to his sleepiness. Very nice!

Bises,

That was like me at work today.

Cool and funny shot, maybe he was praying "Please don't let her spend too much money today..." ;-)

Unlike me, I'm guessing he would have no trouble sleeping on a plane!

I like the fountain, beautiful.
Karen's comment made me smile.
