I took the GH2 out to the N17 Occupy Portland protest and had a good time taking pics and witnessing the sausage of democracy being made. Nothing spectacular from a photographic perspective, but I had a really good time shooting some action. Cops pre-emptively shut down the Steel Bridge to keep public transport open, as the protesters were planning to "occupy" it. After leaving the Steel Bridge, the protesters met for a couple hours in a park, making plans to move downtown. There were some good speakers and chants going on. You could feel the energy in the air. One of the organizers A passionate speaker from a Union Writing down legal contact on their arms info in case of arrest One of the organizers One of the organizers The cops were also gearing up to get ready There were some characters there The cops formed a wall to keep the protesters out of the street They wouldn't give an inch, the cops held the street Wells Fargo branch as the main group of protesters was just starting to stream in And a few minutes later Shot of the scene a little later from a parking garage, I had to shoot quick because the security guards were insisting I leave... This guy cracks me up, it's like he went on a shopping spree in a police accessory store.
