Mike



Mike is a security guard at One State House Square.  He was half an hour away from finishing a 16-hour shift.  Still, he was in a good mood and his shirt was as clean and well-pressed as if it had just come off the hanger. 

Mike had a birthday one week ago and was given a promotion that day.  He is proud of his work as a security guard.

Perhaps all that overtime income is what put a smile on his face.

He looks pretty darn good to have just finished a 16-hour shift!! Most companies could use more employees like Mike! I do enjoy your "people" shots, Jack! Enjoy your day!

You go Mike! 16 hours, I would have been on the ground. Nice portrait.

A 16-hour shift seems quite heavy... A belated happy birthday to Mike!

Sharon said...

Wow, 16 hours is a long shift. I'm not sure I'd still be smiling.

He has a good attitude for putting in those kinds of hours. Maybe while you took this his company was photographing you on the security video system.

He's pretty mellow after 16 hours!

Nice portrait Jack, Mike looks very proud, and this after 16 hours shift! Great!

Well captured! The thought of a double shift makes me double glad I'm retired.

Always best to keep on the right side of security men! I do 13 hour shifts and usually look a mess at the end of it - mind you I don't even look that smart at the start of a shift!

He could handle my security!

Lois said...

I'm pretty sure I would not look that good after a 16 hour shift, but then I'm a lot older than he is!

Michelle said...

He does look like a happy man!

Madge Bloom said...

Another great photo, but a 16 hour shift!! He deserves both a medal and a pay raise.

Wonderful portrait. Congratulations to Mike on his promotion and his birthday and also on his pride in his work. Every man should be blessed with being a proud man at work.
