One advantage of traveling with a zoom lens is the ability to tweak your focal length when you are limited in your movement. Looking down from the fourth floor of the Starbucks Reserve Roastery filled my mind with all of these graphic lines and colors and so many photo ideas. But there were also tourists looking at the same thing on all of the other floors, and I felt it was distracting to a clean composition. But zooming out a bit to 35mm and holding my camera out over the railing would effectively crop out all of the tourists. Except…for the one I wanted coming up the escalator to add just that one human element to the image. As mom always said…patience, my son. And so I waited. And finally it all came together in this photo. Sigma 28-70mm f2.8 DGDN on a Sony A9M2. ISO 3200; f7.1 at 1/60 second. 35mm.
