Solitude under Neon Lights

It was early April at Las Vegas, but felt like hottest summer for a Minnesotan.

The sky was clear at that night.  My friend and I were strolling down Las Vegas Boulevard, snacking, drinking and picturing.  The neon lights along the streets were shinning strong and lightening everything.  Loud musics were playing and people were happy as if they all won some money at those casinos.

Just around a dim corner not too far from that famous Caesars Palace, I spotted this guy, quietly sitting on the road curb.  His facial expression was lonely and gloomy, and apparently his warm coat was Off-Season in the weather of around 90 degree.  I couldn’t image whether he was homeless, penniless, or just want to be away from families or friends for a while?

My curiosities encouraged me to take my camera’s lens cap off, and snap this sight which was not so harmonious with its surroundings.

  1. Great photo! With street photography in general, I’m always curious, did you ask his permission to take the photo and maybe publish it later? That dilemma totally prevents me from taking photos of strangers on the street, though they’d often make great shots 🙂
