Happy at work (portrait)

I thought that I'd contribute a little something that my father (your regular host) couldn't. For those who don't know, I am in management with Saint Louis Bread Co (Panera Bread, for those elsewhere in the US). Bob and I had discussed the possibility of me taking some shots of the bakers who work overnight at each café, to post for the breakfast theme day on August 1st, but I got a bit overwhelmed and couldn't do it. Also of note is the factoid that this photo was taken at the Kirkwood, MO bakery-café, the first ever SLBC/Panera café (it will turn 20? years old this fall).

But finally, I like this photo just as a portrait. I often wish that I could be as happy at work as Camille (the photo's subject). And also, I like the beige and green of Camille's outfit in the foreground, and the warm oranges and cool blues of the background.

It's great to be served at the counter by someone who is passionate about their job.

It will really make your day!

She's got lovely taste in eye-wear, and I definately agree with lynette as well. Especially on such a gray day a radiant smile shines even brighter.

Do you always work at the same Bread Co. or do you move around occassionally to different stores like my friend does with Taco Bell? I often frequent the Brentwood or Galleria Bread Co. because I live in the BWood and my friend's hubby works at the Galleria location.

I love Camille's smile. She's like a breath of sunshine.

I love the color pallets too.
