“No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main. If a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friend's or of thine own were: any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind, and therefore never send to know for whom the bells tolls; it tolls for thee.” 
― John Donne

A Few Good Images

I went and covered the Labor Day Bridge Walk this morning. I wrote a coverage story for it that will go up on the Lanthorn pretty soon and I'll share that then, but I have a few other pictures from the day that I'll share now.

 Snapped this before I ever got to the event, walking along the river from where I parked my truck.

 I don't know if this man realized how 'meta' his sign was.

 If I had to choose one photo to sum up the day, it would be this one. Most people were just walking across some bridges, but there was a smattering of union talk in there.

 I did a bit of an edit job on this one, bringing up the contrast to make the shadows more pronounced. I like the moody look it produced.

Even though some politics got dragged into the day, it was over all pleasant. I really enjoyed working today. After the mayor left, the protesters settled down and LaborFest got underway, with people enjoying music and beer by the river until the weather soured(presumably, I left to write my story for the Lanthorn).

 I had no idea who these guys were when I snapped the picture. I just saw a group of guys in fatigues eating popsicles and got a giggle out of it so I grabbed my camera. Probably my favorite of the day. I think they were ROTC.
