The haunting composition of this fine art photograph from my portfolio has such an ethereal quality.
It is one of my favorites for this reason.
The flames from the flambeau casts an eerie red hue on the man carrying it.
With his arm raised, face hidden in the darkness and the obscured faces of parade-goers barely perceptible in the background it seems it could be happening long ago as easily as in recent times.
With the flambeau-lit blur of activity, it looks almost like some ceremony or rite occurring in the night.
Also, notice the skull-like shape in the background? It adds to the magical night photograph.
It's an imaginative, surreal artwork to enjoy.
About Flambeau: The flambeau lights and men carrying them are an interesting and traditional way of lighting the Mardi Gras parade. Long ago, hundreds would walk in and along the parade to light it for parade-goers. Today they are more a charming nod to the past but appreciated all the same. Not all the Mardi Gras parades have them anymore either so it is a real treat to see them. Get this wonderful, mysterious photograph to enjoy this New Orleans' flambeau man making his way down the parade route.
