The second Monday of every month is dedicated to Macro at Lens and Pen by Sally’s weekly photo challenge. We were out-of-town again this weekend and while I took a lot of photos in the Skagit Valley Tulip Fields none of them were macro which left me thinking I might need to skip this week. Then this morning I read Sally plans to take a nice, long spring vacation and realized this was my last chance to participate in April so here is an up close and personal view of the 2014 Starbucks Siren.
A little history about the Siren from the Starbucks webpage:
“Let’s go all the way back to 1971, to when Starbucks was first coming to be. In a search for a way to capture the seafaring history of coffee and Seattle’s strong seaport roots, there was a lot of poring over old marine books going on. Suddenly, there she was: a 16th century Norse woodcut of a twin-tailed mermaid, or Siren. There was something about her – a seductive mystery mixed with a nautical theme that was exactly what the founders were looking for. A logo was designed around her, and our long relationship with the Siren began.”
