This is the check-in desk at Home Slice. Adjacent, there is a small waiting area. The Fujifilm 15-45mm works perfectly here to capture the drama of the space, including the circular ceiling mural.
The 15-45mm f3.5-5.6 is the less expensive kit lens to the better-regarded 18-55mm f2.8-4, which I also own. However, the better lens starts at 27mm equivalent. While my favorite kit lens starts at 22.5mm. Wider can mean more excitement if done correctly.
This brings us back to the mural. I’ve never noticed the Guarding Angles before. The Guardian Angles is an unarmed crime prevention organization that started in New York City in the late 1970s. I remember them fondly as I used to take the subway to high school between 1978 and 1982.
Back then, the subways were not very safe, and I always felt a sense of relief when there was a Guardian Angel aboard. I even once met Curtis Sliwa, who was the founder.
