the timid european ground squirrel, stopping to smell the daisies, photographed in vienna by julian rad, who explains, “you have to be at eye level with the squirrels. that means you have to lay on your stomach for quite a few hours in order to get them in front of your lens. you have to make yourself invisible. it is important that they have no indication you are there.” (see also: more precious lil woodland buddies)
I think the thing I regret the most about my 3 years at Starbucks is that I didn’t get the satisfaction of quitting. I didn’t get my last day. I walked in on that shift not knowing it would be the last time I worked with those people I made such good friends with. Well, I quit Sonya, I quit Starbucks.
