Long ago, I had a group of friends who would throw great parties. At these events, the real fun never got started until someone pulled out a rubber chicken. When I came upon this mural in Wynwood, Miami, the imagery reminded me of those antics.
I was determined to get the entire posse of characters into my photograph, including that yellow chicken. Using my 10-22mm wide-angle lens, I kept pulling back my tripod backwards, further into the street, until everyone fit into the frame. The blue sky materialized at just the right time.
