Renee Rendler-Kaplan captures a bustling morning at an Evanston Starbucks.


Starbucks, Evanston

Renee Rendler-Kaplan and her husband often grab a drink at the bustling Starbucks on Sherman Avenue en route from Evanston’s weekly farmers market to Wilmette’s French market. “I was in a long line and shot this with the outside windows behind me—through the glass display case and partitions around the barristas toward the back of the store,” says Rendler-Kaplan. She explains that the windows and glass partitions created layer upon layer of reflections along with the moving effect from the employees and customers going about their activities. “The lighting, the glass and the warm colors along with the crowds and reflections of the bright sunny morning usually make for a great shot,” she adds. Good morning, indeed.
