Blades of grass
San Francisco, CA, March 2007 [Click to embiggen]
Chic restaurants have all sorts of stylistic flourishes to set themselves apart from the other chic restaurants. The San Francisco W Hotel's restaurant, creatively called XYZ, has little boxes of wheat grass sprinkled here and there throughout the space.
So when we happened upon the hostess carefully trimming the blades down to an impossibly uniform length, I just had to mark the moment with a picture. While she snipped, I snapped. I think she found it interesting that this supposedly routine aspect of her job was worthy of attention.
It most certainly was.
Your turn: Camera as conversation-opener. Please discuss.
