Barista With A Grubby Beard

We recently checked out a hot new coffee spot that has just opened near us. The verdict is still out on the quality of their gustatory offerings but, to a person, their staff was terrific. They were caring, efficient and very friendly. Here’s a quick portrait I took of a happy, young barista as he took our first order. Because I was so focused on the kid’s wide toothy grin I didn’t notice his straggly chin hair until I looked at his photograph more closely in Lightroom.

Admittedly it’s an old guy’s opinion, but I think  this grubby beard somehow diminishes this kid’s otherwise perfect presentation.

Bowtie Wearer With Bad Knees I spent my early years in Massachusetts in a little town called Easton. I went to Harvard, served in the Navy as Operations Officer on and LST, founded a construction company and served in the state Legislature as Assistant Minority Leader. However my life really began when I moved to Maine and opened an art gallery. I've been around the fine arts in the commercial art business for over 25 years now and loved (almost) every minute of it. I look at every day is a gift, except when it's very cold outside or I have to go to the dentist.

I'd love to hear from you
