I thought that the case study of visuals on Barrone Street was a very interesting study. In New Orleans, people were using visual methods (for example graffiti) to voice their political and social opinions. Radtke chose to study these images and what they symbolized. The research was done while the researcher was bike riding through the city and I think that this is interesting because this is not a normal way that researchers go about collecting data. He often took pictures that were covered the next day and so his photographs were unique, as they were often destroyed quickly after he captured them. I found the entire story of the study interesting; how people transformed the streets into an area to voice their opinions.
