I have a very clear memory of taking this shot. It was taken in June 2012 and I’d been walking around in NY City all day. I’d been down to Adorama where I’d just bought a new lens for my NEX 5N: a 30mm Sigma f2.8, which I hadn’t yet used. It was a very hot day and I was feeling rather tired so I decided to pop into a bar for a cooling drink. While I was waiting for it I took the lens out of its box and put it on the camera. In my eagerness to try it I took this picture of my beer. There was only one other person in the bar and I attempted to take a picture of her. Unfortunately she picked up on what I was doing and asked me to delete the picture. I was on private property and she had asked politely (i.e. with no overt anger) so apologizing profusely I complied.
