OK, this one is more humorous than great photography, definitely not pretty (in other words, not my usual thing). But I just can't resist pictures like this whenever I happen upon some news-worthy event. I miss all the action the news media is recording and end up with pictures like this:



Taken at a place where there was a labor union demonstrating, an hour or two before work.

The news media is not only everywhere but at times insidious.
Captures the immediacy very well.

Thank you both. Glad I'm not the only one who sees the humor or whatever in this. Don't get me wrong, I think the news people have a difficult job (how do you fill time when nothing is going on?). But sometimes they do dumb things/look like they're nuts in order to get a story. And sometimes they try to make something out of nothing (more or less this situation) where they were far more interesting than this particular crowd that was walking in circles, carrying signs and sounding much like a school pep rally.

No, I can see the 4, indicating it's their own feed.

The photo is on zenfolio, and they sometimes do maintenance on (our) Thursday nights. I think it's visible now.

Getting to work early isn't dedication - it's healthy. I use the time to get some exercise, either by taking a walk or at a nearby gym. And I get there before rush hour really starts, saving my nerves and temper. It's amazing how much longer my commute is if I start a half hour later than usual.
