On a hot and muggy Friday afternoon, I ventured to New York City’s South Street Seaport for an afternoon of photography. I hope you like the images.
On the one month anniversary of the Occupy Wall Street movement, I decided to go down to wall street and lend my support to the cause as well as take photos and talk to some of the people that are there. I found that the movement is a peaceful one and there is a lot of information that is being shared and expressed, although the media is not reporting the stories about the movement correctly. Also, a lot of people of color are there as either put of the organized movement or supporters of the movement, but you would not think this was the case if you based this opinion on the media coverage . The day was beautiful and even the more than 50 police officers that surrounded the small park were on their best behavior. If you have an opportunity to visit the park, then please do so.
I took a walk around downtown Manhattan to take some pictures of the new World Trade Center towers. Leading up to the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, it was a busy day with a lot of tourist roaming around the site. I walked around the entire site taking photos and talking with strangers. The day was beautiful as everyone was hanging out and the mood was very calm and peaceful.
