    Photos at Occupying Wall Street

    Anybody here in the forum has been there with a LF camera as they are in many cities now? I am thinking of camping in LA city hall, site of Occupying LA, for a day or two with my Graflex Super D for some random portraits. Any suggestions or ideas?

    And Domenico is coming with me.

    Go for it Hugo. The LA police seem to be better behaved than the police in NYC and Boston.

    Really ? Rodney King didn't think so.

    I was thinking of going down to the demonstration here in Seattle. Our police are very polite and professional, it seems.

    That's why they're better behaved. They learned. (don't want to get into politics here. please. sorry. thank you.)

    +1! I was going to come down with my Super Graphic, but not my 8x10 monorail.

    Were you thinking of Saturday or Sunday?

    I was planning to let the weather dictate, but if you'll be there one day or the other, I'd love to meet up for coffee.

    I was at the NY march last week and saw several young people with 35mm and MF cameras; I spotted someone with an 8x10 but it was so crowded that I did not try to approach him.
    I didn't bring anything; I was not in the mood for any hassles...

    I drove past our new encampment last evening. Due to an unexpected "honey-do" list when I got home from work there wasn't enough light for the 8x10 I wanted to use but I drove past just to see.

    It looks like a homeless camp. I expected to see signs, people up and about, but there were just some long tables, sleeping bags, people sitting around talking. Not very interesting photographically. Now the weather's turning and they've all promised to move out for the weekend so my little town can have the harvest festival they've planned. The protesters are supposed to be back Sunday night. Maybe it'll be worth a negative or two by then.

    Either day works for me. The weather looks good for the weekend, and the bus runs roughly the same. However, Saturday looks like it will be the busiest, with the "protesters" planning to put up 500 tents.

    For those that don't know, Westlake park isn't really a park, it's a plaza surrounded by stores and it isn't very large. The last time grass grew there, there were deer and hunters with bows. Yes, there are "green spaces" in "downtown" Seattle, but Westlake isn't one of them.
