Throwback (a wee bit further back ;) ) Thursday and Happy (slightly belated) one year Tumblr ‘Birthday’ to this blog.
The first photo was taken (by me) outside Citi Field where an Anti-Internet rally was being held. The second photo (of me) was taken by Mo Gelber at a counter-protest held across from the stadium.
Some more photos I took at the rally from my archives: here and here and here and here
While looking back through my archives I realized that I joined Tumblr just a little over a year ago! I want to take this one year mark to thank the amazing photographer Thliii who somehow found my photos and re-blogged this photoset of ‘the stare’ and ‘the glare’ on Luxlit, without which I may never have come across the community of photographers on tumblr. That photoset was acually taken on my very first street photography expedition with my dear T2i and I remember the pleasure of telling a piece of the unfolding story by stepping back and letting one of the subway poles into the frame to create a physical barrier that I felt mirrored the barrier she was trying to create with her eyes.
