A rooftop deck with wooden flooring, metal chairs, and tables, surrounded by potted plants. The deck overlooks a body of water with a visible cargo ship in the distance. A mural depicting a similar scene is painted on a wall.

This was taken at about the same time and location as another photo I shared last week, but I only saw it recently when I received film scans.

I like this composition a lot more. The shadows balance the mural wall, there are fewer rooftops in the frame and they are below the railing, the colors better reflect the feeling of that morning on the rooftop.

The square format and the film properties work together pretty well in this case.
