I snapped this photo on the way back to my car after an assignment shooting a new alcohol drink at a bar in downtown Monterey. I opened up the aperture all the way and shot it on the "Vivid" color setting on the my camera, giving it kind of a painting look. It's a nice simple, feature photo, "slice-of-life" image that I like.

I saw it from the street and decided to frame it through the window. Looking at it now, I think I would have stepped back a few feet to pull the image out a bit wider.
