This is Part 2 of my photo essay on people sleeping in public, covering Australia and The Americas (see Part 1 on Southeast Asia). The photo project started in Southeast Asia where I saw people sleeping in plain sight on the street, apparently taking a snooze while at work. Who knew I’d find more people asleep on the job on the last two continents we visited on our trip?
