The tattooed man was there earlier, sitting outside. He had a brief conversation with the baristra, Ben. The man on the right showed up about fifteen minutes later, and they came inside and sat opposite each other. I could only hear “she blah-blah-blah” running through their conversastion.
It is difficult to capture two people who aren’t posing for you – you don’t know when they will leave, and the person that you mass in first gets more attention, with the second subject looking like an after-thought. I apologize for the proportion differences, but the likenesses are fairly accurate.
These days, it is difficult to find people in deep conversation anywhere without their laptops or phones, so I was so happy to be at Epoch at the right time. Thank you, Epoch, for allowing to paint.
