    With all of th OWS off-shoot demonstrations around the US and the globe, and with a lot of folks shooting them, let's see if we can consolidate into one thread and really document this movement.

    I'll start with some shooting I did at and immediately around Occupy Philly yesterday. I'll be up in NYC next weekend and will no doubt shoot some of the Occupy Wall Street up there. Although this type of shooting has things in common with street shooting, I find it fundamentally different. More about documenting an event, a movement, an occupation - less about specific human moments, although those are allowed too.

    All with the EPL3 (mostly 12mm, but a few 25 and a few 45), except the last, which was the new iphone. Some color, some B&W, a few selective color, which I usually don't like but occasionally serves a purpose. More in a set in my flickr stream.

  2. Fantastic as always, Ray. You know, if you want to change your thread title to a generic "Occupy", it's never too late to start.

    Whoever brought the purple lounge chair is a serious Occupier!

    Great shots and use of selective color!
     
  5. Some occupy protests have occurred in Australia on a smaller scale, with some having since been "moved on" by local authorities. A few shots below from Brisbane (the last couple shot with a Canon, otherwise an E-PL1).

    Nice pics though I feel bad for all the people that have to walk to their jobs in the morning through all that.

    It's a minor discomfort. OTOH, they have jobs to go to. Many of these people would happily trade places with them I'd bet.

    Whoever merged the various other posts into this thread (I assume it has to be an administrator?), thank you! This seems like the kind of topic that would be nice to consolidate given the potential for so many people to be shooting these events in so many parts of the globe. But whoever it was missed Rick's series from around Texas - could this be added as well?
