  1. night workers photo documents – a good idea!

  2. It was a creative post. Till now I have never came across anyone who thought about creating a post on the Night Workers. Great thought and a really nice post.

    • Thank you Arindam – I would have liked to cover a wider range, such as the sorting offices and the people working on the railway but didn’t have any shots of those in my archive.

  3. Great concept and entry for this week. Night workers provide important functions.

  4. You’ve outdone yourself, Martin. These are brilliant photos, and the whole concept is absolutely terrific. Kudos.

    • That’s very kind Judith – Night comes easy to us Half-Vampires 😉 I’m just pleased to see you recovering from your mis-adventure 🙂

    Beautiful night photos Martin! Great idea for N!

  6. great thought, the often forgotten people, the night workers, spot on martin with your excellent images 🙂

    • Thanks Christine – I enjoy taking photos at night and you don’t have to be up all hours to catch some of these essential activities 🙂

  7. Oh, this is fantastic, Martin. While we sleep they work to keep the world going. I remember watching from the vantage point of a very high floor of a London hotel as street cleaning lorries arrived in the depot below, in the early hours of the morning.

    At a tangent it reminds me of the Westworld scene when everyone’s asleep and the streets of Westworld are put back to rights, androids repaired ready for the next day.

    • LoL – I remember Westworld too 🙂 I’ve done a bit of night work in Telephone exchanges in my younger years – wouldn’t want to do it now though. Nights is a young person’s game!

  8. Wonderful night shots, Martin. I am glad that I am asleep while they keep the cogs turning.

    Another excellent treat my friend
    and I hope that you are getting ready
    for a nice Easter Weekend 🙂

    Have a fun day and evening also 🙂

  10. These images make me nostalgic for all things nocturnal, Martin!
    Interesting how everything seems to take on such a different look / atmosphere at night!
    Really, really cool!
    🙂

  11. Some great night shots. I hated working night shift. Only because I couldn’t get a decent sleep during the day with outside noise keeping me awake a lot of the time. You can’t trust those inspection teams, they’re always out looking for trouble.

  12. Really great concept and photos—the unsung heroes.
