Minnesota Workers Series #1

A year or so ago, I posted a Minnesota Workers Series which was well-received so I decided to try it again. Meet Kara, a barista at my local Starbuck's Cafe on Ford Parkway in Highland Village. She and her colleagues were very busy during this photo session of mine.

Two more days and I will have posted 500 photos on this blog (not counting my Mazatlan, México blog!)


  1. I love seeing people "do what they do". I'll enjoy this series very much.

    Congrats on your upcoming 500th. My 100th is in a few days, so I'm in awe. :)

  2. I love seeing people's offices or people in action.

    I'm not sure how to even count how many posts I've made, but 500 is certainly impressive!

  3. 500 photos c'est énorme, bravo et c'est un plaisir pour nous.
    Les Starbuck me font toujours penser a mon premier voyage a NYC ou je les ai découvert, maintenant on en trouve partout dans Paris.

    500 photos is enormous, bravo and it is a pleasure for us.
    The Starbuck always make me think my first trip was a NYC or I discovered, now are found everywhere in Paris.

  4. Congratulations on reaching 500 photos. I don't know how you kept track. :) I look forward to seeing more pictures on your workers series.

  5. Friends don't let friends go to Starbucks! Plus I don't think you can say "workers" and "Starbucks" in the same sentence.... Avanti popolo!

  6. Hi Kate, its a good idea to post a serie of workers on our cities, I guess I have a few. Congratulations in advance for your 500th. Cheers and thank you so much for your visits and comments in all this time.

    Let me be the first to congratulate you on 500 posts.

    I just read a piece about the state of our economy and how many big names and lesser ones are going bankrupt.

    I had heard that Starbucks was in trouble with $4.00 a cup coffee. They were not on the list I saw today.

    I like your photograph, Kate. Do you suppose the lady is (probably) working a second job trying to make ends meet.

    You have been very faithful doing this "job" and doing extremely fine posts. Congratulations !
    And worker series is good and meaningful.
    Nice spring days to you, Kate!

    Congrats on 500 posts. Bravo. Great photo.

  10. Ooh super another Worker's series. Such a good idea. this is a lovely photo, Kate.

    I'll be back to congratulate you on 500...what a feat.

  11. Kate, I am looking forward to see your workers series. And congrats for your upcoming 500th photo.

  12. A nice idea! Regarding Starbucks and similar chains, I'm a bit reluctant to see the invasion! Coffee places, restaurants, shops... start to look too much the same all around the world!

    Well, I will be back for the congratulations... still two to go! But 498 is already very good!

  13. I lookk forward to more from this series. 500! Thats a lot of photos!

  14. 500 is quite a bit, congrats, Kate.
    The girl is quite attractive :-)

  15. 500 today...I m jealous!
    Keep up the good work!

  16. Have you tried the new smoother coffee Starbuck coffee (ie. doesn't taste burned) called Pike Place Blend? It's actually quite good.


Thanks for visiting my blog; I appreciate it! Come back often!!
