This guy is making popcorn in a kettle (hence the name Kettle Corn) in a small hut in Bryant Park in New York City.
I shot this just after Christmas of 2012.
His gloves, jacket and protective mask made him look like he was working in some sort of foundry. I thought I'd really push for that effect and gave the image this harsh, grungy B&W treatment.

This works so well,
innovative and suggestive of the danger as he cooks
BUT

Not what I think of when I think of Kettle Corn from the street vendor-- missing the red and white cups and the bright yellow kettle cover!

Very hungry for pop corn just now

WinkWinkWinkWinkWink excellent treatment. Thought he worked with a grinder with that face protection.
I have learned something new. We used to cook legs of lamb and once a goose in the hardening oven, the Greeks did their moussaka. Wasn't approved, though.

Very well processed, Walter, and difficult to think that he is making something as delicate as popcorn Grin Carol

I took some kettle-korners Wink at one of our local does here in Georgetown - ours were not dressed as welders, but I can certainly understand why this guy has face protection - the heat is intense and the smoke is quite strong and acrid - but the smell from a distance off is wonderful. I do not miss those yellow containers and love this in mono.
