Where: North Hollywood, CA
Between Meeting: Stopped For Coffee
Most Starbucks in North America have the same physical layout. There is a certain comfort in knowing that wherever I go, I know where the half and half can be found.
Almost all Starbucks with windows facing the street have semi-transparent blinds that are lowered to block the setting or rising sun. When I find myself in a Starbucks and those inside are wincing due to the sun, I make sure I’m ready for some potentially great backlit stuff.
When the blind was lowered at this Starbucks in my native San Fernando Valley, the diffused but still semi-specular light, illuminated the short cropped hair of a woman reminding me of a total eclipse.
