Well folks, it looks like in my un-official poll it's about one vote FOR more protest photos, and one vote AGAINST more protest photos.   So I flipped a coin, and tails-it-is.   Here's four more...

Hi Plug1,

Yeah Plug1, I'm looking forward to seeing what's behind that big yellow smiley-face you always seem to be wearing... I'll be sure to bring my own big yellow smiley-face if our paths ever do cross...

Now, that could be an idea for SF -- a smiley-face parade, or maybe a smiley-face day...

You guys are too much.
I'm not wearing a yellow smiley face.

I do like your protest photos though.

The television coverage is never personal, only political.

I just had to laugh at the "Free ToBet" sign- I can't quite decide if he's trying to make fun of "Free Tibet" or if he figures so long as people are making a fuss about something he might as well join in about his issue.

I agree with Troy- your last few days of protest photos- focusing on one person at a time instead of the masses- make it more personal than what you see on the news.

Hi Troy (Texas Travellers),

Yes, your comments seem to be showing up here.

I am going to send you a note about big prints -- mayby you have an idea of a way to go.

Best regards, Don and Kitty

I really like the selective shots of words or people. You captured the essence of the day.
That last shot is too much...

AphotoAday said...

Thanks to all for your comments...

And I like that last shot too... That guy was drawing quite a crowd -- he said one lady had already poked him with the end of her picket telling him he didn't know how to spell... I met more than my fair share of wierdo's that day -- including the Famous Frank Chu who walks around with his indecypherable sign five days a week protesting a cause only he can explain fully... He is my current San Francisco hero -- I'll have to post a photo of him some day... --But in the mean time, go to the Wikipedia and look up "Frank Chu"... Better fasten your seat belts first...

Glad you mentioned Frank Chu! I was going to ask you if you saw him there. Frank never misses a protest or a San Francisco event, and when there isn't one going on, he marches by himself.

I ran into him outside the Apple store when they were selling iPhones for the first time, if you can believe that!

Honestly, I sometimes wonder if he's getting worse. When I first "met" him, he only had a handful of galaxies on his sign and now the number is exponentially higher. I'm not actually worried about the galaxies (should I?) but I wonder if his mental health is deteriorating. Hope not.
