    They're aboriginals, Rusty. They were protesting the genocide of 300 aboriginals or Indians in Nunavut and Yellowknife, Canada. I went there to take pictures. They marched on the way to G20 summit, three blocks away from Queen's Park where the Parliament resides. When the firetrucks started trickling in, I went to the nearest subway station, rode the train and went home. I don't know what happened. They were probably hosed with water or tear gassed. Obama was there too. Periodista/fotografo para granma.cu

    well, i think if you focused in on the lady with the black cap you can at least capture some gloom. The lady in the middle looks like she is waiting for the bus or something.

    I would not risk my life doing that for these guys. Giving them media mileage in this photoforum.is already a risk in itself. Besides my friends in granma.cu often tell me, "you are not a foot soldier..Don't act as one..you are a photojournalist." Three hundred fifty Nunavuts had already died doing the kind of thing that I am doing..Isn't that good enough for me and for them..Of course, I am in their (RCMPs) roster..What else do you expect...

    one thing you could do is not keep your lens zoomed all the way to 300. zoom out so we can see what's happening.

    I was already advised by a magazine I read not to extend it to 300 mm. Ya, you're right...Rusty..
