No photography work today. Spending my time watching my customer troubleshoot ticket to make sure we have a smooth running day.
I decided to grab some lunch at my favorite Mediterranean spot for lunch, then head over to the LCS (Local Coffee Shop aka Common Ground) in Apex, NC. You never know who you are going to meet when you leave your daily workspace (home). I met this gentlemen that is the owner of boxtwelve.com. His company specialize in Editing, Designing, Writing and Project Management. After we talked briefly about our various careers and the companies we had worked for, he let me know his company has performed editing/designing on many of Cisco Press Technology book which I probably have in my home library. His company has also performed the same for other high tech Silicon Valley companies in California. You just never know who you will meet when you venture out and be nice and SPEAK to people with a mannerly way.
So I fired up iTunes and begin listening to one of my favorite jazz artists "Brian Culbertson" "It's on Tonight". The sounds are good considering what I can hear with the cars going by because I sitting outside enjoying the weather and the sites.
Also met a very talkative little girl they came out of the LCS with her mother and little brother. They wondered over to the fixed train coboose behind the local firehouse and I continued to hear her talking, but being very polite to Mom and little brother. They finally wondered back to the LCS where I had made my workspace (outside of the LCS) and she stopped by to have a brief conversation to tell me about her pretty rocks and flowers she had picked up. As they were leaving, she look at me and offered to give me one of her two flowers (image attached). I accepted the flower as a way of saying thank you for being such a nice little girl with her beautiful Mother and Brother. Once again, you just never know who you are going to meet. So, be nice and kind to people and SPEAK to people, young and old, because they will return the same mannerism to you.
Until next time, "Keep shooting & Stay focused".
