apec 3 - nude protestors

This was taken at the Stop Bush Rally/Apec Protest/etc. on the 8th of September, 2007.

These two guys drew a flurry of media attention as soon as they stripped down. Unfortunately they were arrested soon thereafter. While I was scurrying for my camera the sock on the left fell off - if only my fingers were a tad quicker =P
The writing on the left protestor reads:
"Hey Scipione (police chief), where's my concealed weapon?"
They were really friendly and their minute of nude freedom set the tone for the rest of the event, which with the exception of a few scuffles, was quite liberating - for me anyway.

Every time I look at this I smile, you did a great job with lighting and capturing this; seems like you took advantage of a small window of chance, that's cool. :)

Hi! :wave:

Your DD has been featured in my last newsletter as a Gallery Moderator. They'll keep existing, only in a different format. Here is the link: [link]

I'll be present in #NewsStand in my free time, so I'm always available for any doubt, request, etc. and will still be connected with Photojournalism (and street)!

Have a nice day! :blowkiss:

That is beautiful! The lighting, the expressions, (the photographer at the back looking at a fine..subject) the depth of field.
Even if the protestors aren't naked, if they were wearing full-on clothes, it would still deserve a DD.
And it did! Congrats.
