I was recently hired by a Freelance PJ outfit. I know that I'm barely in touch with photojournalism, but the lady liked my people pictures and thought there was potential there....albiet roughly! :lmao: Anyhoo, my first assignment was to cover a KKK protest in Tomball, TX near Houston. Athough my press badge gave me great access to just about everything, the one place media was not allowed to go was near the KKK exhibit held in the town's community center. (Although I did pull off a few with a telephoto). The day was crazy hot, and I'm sunburned as all get out, but I can tell you that I had a total blast. The protesters were to be stationed in a parking lot cattycorner to where the clansmen were, but the clansmen were taunting the protesters by coming out on a patio in their robes and soldiers outfits and things quickly began to get out of hand. One group of the protesters were very peaceful. Two other groups, The New Black Panthers, and the Anti Racist Action group actually wanted to stop the exhibit and clashed with police by marching out of the protest area and trying to storm the exhib area. Photos follow. Sorry for the number of them, but I think they tell the story. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10.
