The Scene Leaving Work Wednesday Night

Long days down the wharf this time of year.  Working every day is starting to take a toll on me mentally but I try not to think about all the time away from my girls too much or it tends to really eat at me. You gotta grind it out this time of year and I know that. At least I took a half a second to snap this pretty shot before heading home.
