Barnes Dance in Denver no longer

The Barns Dance is no longer in Denver.  I raced downtown just in time to photograph a city worker covering the very last of these diagonal pedestrian crossing signals.  My task was to show the end of this diagonal crossing era, and maybe what these Barnes Dance intersection crossings, that originated here in Denver, actually are.

Basically, interesting pictures of people crossing the street.

This is an ideal story to illustrate with reportage style photography.  I looked for different angles, made arrangements to go back with a crew later in the evening and spent some time walking the streets of downtown Denver enjoying the occasion to do some traditional street photography.
