Before The Revolution on Flickr.

Queens, NYC; 2011
I don’t know what the story is with these characters, but it looked like a scene out of the final days of the Court of Versailles before the French Revolution. Note the younger man angling his body in deference to the passing costumers. The older young man in black is visibly annoyed at these fops crowding the sidewalk. I took his rolling up of his sleeve as an unconscious manifestation of hostility.
