most of you know i have posted many a protest here. here's another i caught wednesday at noon. these were shot quickly as the event was coming to an end...technical aspects were not a priority.

i hope to convey the passion/emotion these individuals have for this cause through the images posted in this thread.

Wow JonMikal, these portray the protest and the people who attended so vividly.

Not like I expected anything less then fantastic, but these photos really stand out.

great shots, jm.... i had to go look at the link...those are all wonderful....
you completely grabbed the whole emotional feel of the protesters...

its funny, if you didnt read the signs, they could be listening to music that stirs them, or at a religious gathering... they are so " filled with the spirit"
and the black and white really makes it so much more stark and meaningful....

love the fact that the reporter is in leather....( save the seals, but kill the cows...??) j/k.....

look how many fingers are pointing.... and the building shot is really awesome...

great job.... i think you could easily be a news photographer... you can sure grasp the importance of being right place right time...

kudos my friend.... ( how could anyone get offended by your shots, i will never know.... what happened to dont kill the messenger???)

Nice series... like that you converted them to black and white - makes it have a documentary feel to it. Great job!

Very well captured Jon. You managed to show the emotion of the protesters, and created a story to this series. It is a very sensitive subject, and you handled it perfect. Excellent series my friend.
