Photograph Of the Week

Click to enlarge

This is what you call a 'FU, I'm outta here' photograph taken last night by Mike at 10:10 PM, after another 15 hour day in the oilfield.

The fish is on the bank, all broken out, a kill string in the hole and the well buttoned up. They just turned turned the rig off and the last light tower is next. They're done and can now drive home; for many of the hands that will be an hour away. When they get home they'll get cleaned up, have a few beers, then supper and it'll be probably one or two o'clock in the morning before they get to bed.

They'll be no whining, nor bellyaching about any of this; they've still got jobs and they know how lucky they are.
