I met Emily in Peet's Coffee on High Street as she was grinding some coffee for me. She has worked at Peets for seven months but is leaving soon to work in a dentist's office, for which she jokes she has no experience. Don't worry, she won't be working with patients because her background is in Education. She would love to get a teaching job but none are available right now.
Emily previously worked at a Starbucks in another section of the city (I won't say where so certain college students won't be offended if they read this), and was unsure at first about coming to Peets. But she says she likes the customers at Peets much better than at Starbucks. I like them too, especially since I am one of them:)
Emily is a baseball fan of her hometown minor league team the Rochester Red Wings; who by the way play in the same league as my favorite minor league team, the Pawtucket Red Sox. She also told me both of her parents are professional photographers. Her father is a Leica afficiando so she was especially interested in my DLux-4.
Note to Emily: if you want to see the other photo with the, as you termed it, "the Leica expression" on your face drop me a line. And thank you for letting me take your picture. Good luck in your career.
