San Onofre protest today... did I mention light really, REALLY sucked

so the dog and owner, I am particularly happy, but it had that washed out aspect to it... heavy, heavy cloud cover. On the bright side, just cloud cover... and did not have to resort to point and shoot.

So before it actually started I went down to the State Park. These are folks playing with their dog. The round thing in the back, that is the nuclear plant...



This is Ray Lutz not in focus. On purpose I concentrated on the hat in front of me of one of the attendees. Realize I am shooting quite a bit of black and white (and color) since Black and white has that evocative feel to it. Also somethings never really change, serious...



A man and his dog at the demonstration...



Oh yes this is about shutting down San Onofre... so yes, I like this photo... evocative and I like the reflection on the glasses.



Finally one of the speakers, Corie Shumacker,a world class surfer... notice the plant in the back? Yup got good shots in color too.



My favorite from this actually is one I cannot post, since the person fears for job. So that series will remain in my drive. I am dutiful about that. If somebody says please do not, because of whatever...

1. Bummer because on a good day the BRTs would stand out beautifully against the ocean, sky, or hills.

How the heck did you all get up so close to the plant?



PS: BRTs = Big Round Things (is what people at the plant call the reactor containment vessels).

2. I could have gotten even closer but did not feel like

cleaning sand from my shoes too much... or walking on sand too much. Literally I could have gotten almost to the tsumani containment wall, which is what is behind the people playing.

Yup a few things went through my mind about me getting that close to this thing with a camera and somebody doing that with less than charitable intentions.

7. I like how the piers frame the girl and dog.

I do like the simple composition of the first "tit" shot.
