Black Scorpion

As our workshop in ended in Louisiana, we spent a few hours in New Orleans. At first there were none of those things you would expect on the street. After lunch the performers were out. I made several of this guy swallowing a sword but I always seem to go back to the images that seem more human. Regardless of his tattooed face, he is still a human being who is a showman. My friend Brian ( me have some images that he could have taken, the dolphin was one and this was the other. He might have made more of the sword swallowing. I have never considered myself a street photographer but I feel like I learn a lot about making portraits when I make them so I will continue.
