Sounds wonky? Were you expecting me to say a tripod or storm cover or index cards?
Seriously though, think about it. A lot of times, we spend almost all day outdoors, roaming around in search of picture opportunities. And taking in new places. Traveling around. In the heat (or the cold). All that walking around with your camera in tow sure does take it’s toll!
And when you’re hot and tired (or cold and miserable), with your feet screaming in agony, you sure are thankful to see a cozy coffee shop around the corner. If you’re in New York, it will almost always be the Starbucks mermaid who will greet you and soothe you.
Therefore, I say, Starbucks = coffee = a photographer’s best friend! 😉
