Starbucks’ Sunday Morning Ambivalence

Living in Boston as we do, Starbucks coffee shops are everywhere. This one is just down the hill from us and I go there every Sunday morning to pick up the Boston Globe and the New York Times. Even as late as 8:30 or 9:00 a lot of the regulars still haven’t shown up. Today I had the good fortune of taking a photograph of this guy who seemed either to be reading the paper of nursing a gigantic hangover.

Hangover

However, leaving aside the reason why the bottle got there, it does makes a good focal point for the photograph.
