St. Patrick’s Day - Washington, D.C. 2009
As I was heading home from an early night of dinner and drinks I couldn't help but to think about those poor souls that didn't have to work the day after St. Patrick's Day. I had eaten dinner with friends at Capitol City Brewery. I refer to these all night party-goers as poor souls for the sheer reason that many of them would end up like the man I photographed here.
Often times a nap on the train after a night of fun can lead to missing your stop completely or becoming stranded in a place far from your original destination. This gentleman rode the train from Union Station to the end of the Orange line, woke up for a brief moment [I assumed it was his stop] and then went back to sleep. Who knows how long this guy kept riding? And to give you a little indication of the time it was only 9:00pm when I got to my station and the trains run until about midnight Monday through Thursday.
