    Absolutely amazing pictures. Don't know what else to say. You are doing something I would love to do, but I don't have the time or guts.

    I have to ask you though, how bad was the tear gas? I've been gassed a few times and it is never fun. How did it effect your ability to get the shots that you were after? Sorry these may be newbie questions, but that is the first thing that I thought of when I saw your first photo.

    odd method of application. In the states our tear gas is in a canister much like a grenade, and is usually thrown/rolled/shot into the crowd so that the officers are as far away as possible.

    Amazing picture though. If it was windy I bet you had teary eyes after that one.

    Everyone should enjoy their work. It looks like pepper spray and I don't think I would like to be the guy on the receiving end. That stuff hurts.

    Good shot.
