New Orleans' Royal Street - Leica IIIC and Summar 5cm f2 Lens

Royal Intersection, by Reed A. George
Leica IIIC Sharkskin, Summar 5cm f2 Collapsible Lens
I was scanning a roll of film that I shot in New Orleans while attending the LHSA Spring Shoot 2015 when I came across this shot.
This corner on Royal Street, at Rouse's Grocery, is one of my favorite spots in the city of New Orleans. Always hosting live musicians, rain or shine, it's a real crossroads for everyone who frequents the French Quarter - musicians, tourists, locals, and yes, police officers. This image says a lot about this particular place that I love so much.
