Man Standing Alone and Thinking on Bourbon Street, New Orleans, Louisiana
Street photograph of a man thinking outside a Bourbon Street bar in the fading light of the day from New Orleans, Louisiana. Alone with his thoughts and contemplating the revelry of Bourbon Street, the man stands isolated from the other people in the image. The building in the background of the photo is a French Colonial style, harkening back to the early 19th century. While the man, stationary within this passage of history in his 21st century garb, appears to experience a revelation of his role within this process. A ring of various states of dyed and lightened hair makes the man appear to have a halo like a wayward saint of Bourbon Street dissipation. Doors of classic New Orleans arsenic green measure space, in a regular rectangular pattern, forcing a temporal pacing across the frame of the picture. In the top of the image, the measurement is repeated with triangular motifs ending in a dormer window containing an American flag, a symbol that would have only be new at the time the building was built.
