This is one of those times that I could see the shot as soon as I walked in to this cafe. I Just had to make sure no one or nothing destroyed the moment. I like to have some connection with faces I shoot, find out who and why they are but some times you dont want to mess up the moment and you shoot the face and make up the story in your head.
