Time and Place: Irony

Perhaps it was the irony of Jay-Z playing Chastain Park that caused the torrential downpour. Chilling thunder, blinding lightning and endless rain struck Chastain Sunday night, around the time Jay-Z was scheduled to hit the stage for his concert. This line of folks was waiting in the pouring rain to enter the park for the show. I was standing at the ticket window jammed together with many others seeking refuge under a small roof when I took this photograph. The show was canceled about a half hour later and these people who had waited in line in the pouring rain to enter Chastain would soon be exiting.
