Metropolitan (57), 2012

Contrast and saturation problems fixed in the foreground and in the figure's blue shirt.  Post-processing, represent. Time elapsed: 3 1/2 hrs.  Maybe no one but me will notice the difference between version #1 and version #2, but #1, now destroyed, bothered me enough to change it.

The figure's pose reminds me of those old "Hurry in..." ads from the 1950s and early 60s, a logjam of cartoon figures sprinting toward a one-day sale on washing machines, women's shoes, a storage locker full of beef....

This one is for L., but I was thinking of this great Walker Evans, too.
