    Faces in the Crowd

    Thanks guys.

    I go down to the protests/demonstrations with the 300mm and put it on to get the speakers. Sometimes I swing it around to the crowd too, and it’s always very worthwhile.

On the one hand, they’re listening to some doofus with a microphone speechifying, but on the other hand they’re interested and excited.

    It helps that the speakers are frequently children, who are much less prone to droning on until everyone goes to sleep.

    I wouldn’t take directions from the Navy. Those guys never know where they are.

    I have no actual idea what was going on here, and the old guys are just wearing hats, possibly as a simple costume.

    The kids went out again today, to protest climate change and to demand policy. Here in Bellingham it was actually a no-school day, to the students’ annoyance.

    The speakers were a few Native Americans, and a bunch of kids:

    There were many characters in the crowd:

    … but also a lot of kids, out to see if they can maybe have a future:
