It is easy to notice Occupy Protest when you work in financial district. Even if you don’t agree with different signs or speeches you can have fun to take pictures in really unusual situation. My goal was to avoid politics and to try taking images in the timeless street photography style.
Political signs are important part of the story and I can not ignore them.
I became interested in a way how kids are involved in these protests. I can not get over from the feeling that this is not the place for children to play games with often offensive and aggressive proclamations. But … I can be wrong.
Just one block from protests I’ve noticed woman with the sign that she is looking for a job. This was striking contrast from protest’s demands for entitlements. If I had any power to hire her I would do it.
I did not take so many pictures as many other photographers that covered Occupy Protests. But considering my general low productivity this was great opportunity for shooting.
