In the last few months I've worked up the nerve to ask a local coffee chain (Port City Java) if I they had any space on their walls for a few of my photos. They did and I currently have 5 pictures hanging in 2 locations. This photo was located towards the back of the store (which didn't seem like the best place), but I was happy to have it hanging anywhere. Turns out it was perfect because people at the drive-thru window could see it and that's how it was sold. 1st time that ever happened.
