...then shoot it.
Never hesitate to photograph anything red; it will give you a pleasing image.
That's just how it is.
The red backdrop building looks something akin to a fortification against which the statue is railing. Somewhat oblivious the man weilds his phone as the statue does its sword; the handle of his suitcase kicking back like a scabbard, in concert with the kick back of the statue's cloak - so that the two are in perfect harmony.
This precision in the balancing of the elements is most certainly good fortune. You take care of what you can and leave the rest to fate. BUT one must be prepared for good fortune lest it be wasted.
Typically on the street I will select and arrange a 'theatre' - some clear section of the scene through which I can watch people pass. It is then a matter of looking up and down the way to see who, or what is coming; so that the shot can be anticipated and timed.
