Awesome set, very news-worthy! Particulary like the police car on fire

thanks guys

a couple from today

i'm convinced the cops today had the hots for me. a few were chatting while starring at me, then kept glaring at me. afterwards the video camera came out, apparently they wanted video of me so they could look at me whenever they wanted. i got video recorded lots.

Wonderful shots! I love the smirk on the officer on #5 and #2 reminds me of some dystopia like HL2.

Forgive the pun, but I would have had an absolute blast taking shots of this.

Great shots man.

Nice work Peter.

Documentary quality was the phrase I was looking for. Has that Eddie Adams look about it to it for those who may remember the Vietnam era.

a few more and that'll be it, unless there's another protest :P

these were taken yesterday, demanding of a public inquiry into the actions the police took during the g20 riots.

Great photos - well done! Must have been something being in the midst of the melee.

For those of you in a rut - find an event or a happening and jump in; at the end of the day the subject is the most important thing.
