College Boys on Bourbon Street by Tropical Isle Bar, New Orleans, Louisiana
Street photograph of college boys observing Bourbon Street in New Orleans, Louisiana. The boys gaze on, incredulous, tentative, and alienated from the events of the messy drunken humanity of the Bourbon Street scene. Their attire further separates them, not only the style of the clothing but colors as well. Facing in towards each other creates a closed group, they separate themselves from the aged and worn building in the background of the photograph as well as the revelers on the street. They are further isolated from the environment by the contrast with the plebeian and improvised motorized bicycle.
