3 from yesterday + a Sunday one and a little success story

Yesterday at ISO 1600

Success story, this is R.... one of my employee, one of the constant top 3 sellers, she is - I would say -in her 70's and a little over 3 months ago she decided to look for work, her grand kids and children told her, "You'll never find work at your age..." First place she applied to was at my office, she was hired and started right at after her first interview, started the same day she interviewed.

This one below was taken at Sunday's concert for which she won tickets, she took her grand kid to see it with her. What a wonderfull lady.

Great stuff, Patrick!

Age is no barrier for anything - one of the kids I was looking after years ago got her driver's licence at the age of 72 because the kid's mother got busted for dealing (yet again) and got a three year sentence, and grandma had to pick up the slack.

Love that phone booth shot too - the depth of field on that shot is fantastic!
You buy a Casio to make sure you're on time; you wear a Rolex because you don't have to be on time.
