St. Joseph's Night in NOLA

OK, there are one million more where this came from, but as I am still in the Crescent City and still trying to figure out the structure for this project, here is just a little peak at what I've been up to:

 Michael Tenner Jr., Spyboy for the Comanche Hunters, poses in front of Vernon Freeman, Flagboy for the tribe, in front of the House of Dance and Feathers in the Lower Ninth Ward. St. Joseph's night was the first time that Michael Jr. at age 6 masked Indian. The pose is both for photographs and a part of preparations for the evening. Even though he is only 6 years old, it is expected that Michael Jr, as Spyboy of the Comanche Hunters will always be in front of Freeman, looking out for other Indians.

I first saw the picture, then read the commentary, and finally made a connection. First off, the contrasting colors draw the viewers eye to the picture. It is an aesthetically pleasing photo. More deeply, the subject matter has a greater impact on the viewer after talking to you tonight, Linda. Good to see you and God bless.
