“Take time to smell the coffee” – Rick Fernandez – #YouWowMe 30

Rick Fernandez

As a busy wealth management executive with Northern Trust in Miami, Rick Fernandez looks forward to dropping by El Exquisito Restaurant on Calle Ocho in Little Havana for a quick afternoon cortadito Cuban coffee at their sidewalk window.

Rick advises us to, “Take time to smell the coffee.”  He explained that, “We in Miami, we’re a city of cars.  You really have to stop and get out of your car in order to appreciate things.  Because when you do stop, you have these random encounters (like a photographer taking his portrait) which don’t happen if you stay in your car.”  

Rick is the 30th subject in #YouWowMe –  the first-ever photography project to combine portraiture and personal words of inspiration which are passed to the next person — i.e. a “pay it forward” of inspirational photography.
