Weekly Photo Challenge: Indulge

Day 030 – August 21, 2011

First, the background to this week’s Photo Challenge from WordPress with the theme of indulge.

Security is extremely important to folks living in Peru. The website, How to Peru, has a good article on the public’s perception of safety in many Peruvian cities. Here in Lima, Peru’s capital city, there are many folks who are employed in security services who guard businesses and homes. In our little slice of suburbia, some of our neighbors hire individual personnel to watch over their abodes during the weekends. From Friday all through to Sunday, these hired hands sit dutifully and do nothing but stare at the locked gates of their charges.

With that being said, I do no fault one of these sentinels for indulging in a bit of well-earned ZZZs

Sleeping guard

This is what happens when you listen to "Goodnight Moon" on audiobook

I can be so sanguine about this slumbering security officer because it ain’t my house he’s watching.
