In celebration of all who work in whatever capacity, I present these pictures.

These two noticed me taking this picture and shouted, “$10 a picture!” I didn’t pay up. I think they were checking that the panels on the side of the Hyatt Hotel were screwed in securely.

After going through half my pictures, I finally found a good one of a woman working—in Chattanooga! This is from Niedlov’s Bakery in downtown Chattanooga. In the future, I’ll make a point of taking more pictures of people working. Until now, I’ve generally taken photos of the places they work instead.

And this glassblower was doing his thing at the South Pearl Winterfest in Denver.

    Do you find people are ammenable to having their pictures taken? Sometimes I find people, especially people at work, are often suspicious of your motives — and not only because I want my dog in the picture too, although I’ll bet that doesn’t help. 🙂

    I usually feel a little weird asking. If I were a professional, and could show them model releases and such, I think it would help, but I’m just some lady asking to take a picture for my blog. So usually I sneak the photo. I do have a photo of two drag queens I asked for, though. That’s in the Bump and Grind review.

    Love the picture of the glass-blower – Glass is one of the art mediums of which I cannot get enough. Beautiful stuff.
