Socialist for a DayPosted: March 21, 2009 | |
Today I spent my day marching to the Pentagon with a bunch of anti-war protesters. The march started at 23rd and Constitution and moved on the Pentagon. It was crazy but I enjoyed every minute of it! I got to meet two enthusiastic photographers, one of which had the same camera as me. We were twins! But the funniest thing that happened to me today is when I finally figured out who I was marching with.
Right when the march started a fellow photographer asked me if I were a part of the ISO. I said no and that I’m a freelancer! I totally thought that he was asking me if I were a part of some journalist association. I later found out that ISO actually stands for the International Socialist Organization. Hahaha. I had been marching with these guys for probably 2 or 3 miles before I realized who they were. But I didn’t care; they were so energetic! And anyways, it was all about ending the war.
I can’t wait for the next rally here in DC. They’re such a pleasure to shoot.
