road repair - in motion

today we celebrate "Labor Day" in recognition of all the hard working people serving not for themselves but also for the benefit of others and for their country."Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as though you were working for the Lord and not for people." - Colossians 3:23

donG hO's "in motion" - is a series of photos taken in one place.

Great tribute to these people. Love the photos. Are they taken at night?

the donG said...

hi maya, thanks. yes. the photos were taken at night. most of the posts for the nightscape tribute will feature photos taken at night.

wanderingcommuter said...

i must say, indeed my highest respect and gratitude to them.

pero sana lang yung mga supervisor nila, hindi sila laging pinag aayos ng mga kalsada tuwing rainsy season. napansin ko lang kasi kung kelan hindi maulan saka nagtratrabaho kapag maganda ang weather hindi. meron bang rason yun?

Dra. Rio said...

overtime huh?!..gabing gabi na..picture ka pa din?? hehe=)

L.Reis said...

I must confess that today I don't feel like a working person :):)
Nice tribute to all the working people...we deserve it :)
I did like your photo documentary. Nice work!

the donG said...

commuter, yes. some other people work more than 15hours a day. that's sad but have no control on the management.

dra. rio, sometimes i go home late kaya talagang overtime sa pagkuha ng photos. hahaha...

l.reis, thank you very much. at least today is a rest day, so you can rest all day.

jericho said...

kaloka. pwede bang nakawin pics mo? hehe

Heart of Rachel said...

More power to all the hardworking people who make everyday living easier for the rest of us.

karmi said...

ganda po ng pagkakakuha ng picture. :) sa tapat po ba ng bahay nyo yang construction na yan? ^_^

tc!

Ely said...

Ah,Here i go again...LOL.

quintarantino said...

Usualy we say words of wisdom, but in this case this are photos of wisdom and tribute.
Liked to see them.

Kris McCracken said...

I'm not sure that I'd want to be sleeping with someone outside going hard with a jackhammer all night!

Luke Wiley said...

a great series! love the lighting!

the donG said...

jericho, at your own risk. hahaha... just kidding. sure kung hindi mo naman sya gagamitin para sa public use. kung may acknowledgment naman ok lang.

rachel, may they be blessed even more.

thanks karmi. no it's not in front of our house. it's on a highway.

ely, oo nga naman. hahaha...

quintarantino, thank you very much!

kris, that would be very difficult. thanks for passing by.

luke, thank you. the lighting in the photo comes from the small spotlight (upper right of the photo).

collapsingbarrycade said...

whew! dude, it's hard keeping up with you. haha! like i said, you are such a prolific, uber sensible blogger. this one is for the books again--relevant drama for an international holiday. i couldn't have said (showed) it any better.

man, what do we have -- regular bloggers --- to deserve you? :D

Sandy & Dick said...

Nice job...on the job! Router replaced, photos uploaded! More will follow tomorrow...on the stuck dump truck:-)

Random Ramblings said...

Kawawa nga sila - nakabilad sa init, pag umulan mababasa din. yung katawan nila masyadong exposed sa elements. included dapat sila sa modern day heroes natin.

nice shot by the way! looking forward to your next nightscapes..

dave said...

tells a lot..=D

the donG said...

barry, maraming salamat! these are but simple shots of people who work day and night. working that they may serve others.

every blogger is unique and as i've been doing bloghopping lately, i've seen really good posts from every blogger. as much as we value every blog, we learn to value the blogger as well.

sandy, i just visited your blog. you've really got some good set of posts. it really showed that you've recovered from the problem on uploading those photos.

arlene, i agree. they are our modern heroes. they live to survive while others live to enjoy. thank you for appreciating the nightscape series. keep in touch.

dave, salamat.

Earvin said...

Ganda ng pagkakuaha ng pics.

Dakilang Islander said...

dabo said...

ce ka rin?

the donG said...

earvin, salamat.

d'islander, mabuhay nga sila!

dabo, thanks for dropping by. sorry. hindi ko alam kung ano ang ce. civil engineer? im not. im an ece.

Lawstude said...

i used to think that labor day is for pregnant woman only. (just kidding).

we usually associate labor with the work force so to all the working class (like u and i), this is our day.

have a nice day dong.

A wildlife gardener said...

Brilliant photos...and we should all consider those who work at night and do all the things we take for granted and never consider. My sister nursed the sick in a hospital for 28 years at night. She always said,'I never see the much of the sun...but the moon is mine' Imagine doing nightshift nursing for 28 years...

Heart of Rachel said...

I came back to let you know I have an award for you on my blog.

Napaboaniya said...

While a lot of us were enjoying the public holiday yesterday workers like them are still toiling away at work.

A day we all give thanks to all working. Be it for the country, for own, for money, for family, for food, for life :)

Have a good weekend Dong! :)

SandyCarlson said...

Happy Labor Day! Your photos are a wonderful tribute to people who work hard day and night.

God bless.

Karen of Sillymonkeez said...

That is a great series of photos! You've made a dirty job into art. The work lights creat a wonderful lighting effect.

the donG said...

lawstude, have a nice day too! thanks.

wildlife gardener, that's something heroic. something worthy to be recognized. thanks for dropping by.

rachel, thank you very much. that's my first blog award from a blogger. that'll inspire me more.

napaboaniya, i simply agree. happy weekend.

sandy and karen, thanks a lot!

monsoon-dreams said...

the donG said...
