This lady was put out on the street by ''banks'' that are running the U.S...i had given her my card and she actually
got a hold of me. She was there at the federal building protesting all the illegal stuff going on in the U.S.

Here is a copy and paste of some images I took last year...Found the link as I am cleaning up my computer.

I was not going to post these, but then they are photographs. I decided to pull Daniel out of school and go for a hike in the angeles national Forrest since we had not been on a good hike in while. I grabbed by ME SUPER and took off...I wish I had taken my digital with Long lens, but who knew...While Hiking a creek we came across some voodoo dolls hanging on the trees and as we looked up ahead, we found a group of people practicing true Santeria...They where doing animal sacrifice and putting the blood on these peoples head to ''cleanse'' them...It was creepy to me and horrible. All I could do is pray for these people. Anyway here are some images. Wrong lens and these are heavily cropped as they are quick scans. I will not post the slaughtering of the animals though. So ugly...They ended up scaring us away as they did not like their pictures taken....but I kept shooting.
Here we have the black witch and the white witch. Notice the snake..




Here is a little tighter look at the witch


The ritual begins




One of the voodoo dolls (or what ever it is)on the trees. This form of hard core Santaria is normally not seen.. Here we have two religions inter twined.


Here we are walking towards them.

bluesman, I like your b&w images from the flea market.

Javier, that sounds like a pretty f*cked up hiking trip. Who would have guessed there were crazed fiends slaughtering animals in the forest. Interesting little storey though!

I'd say place an anonymous call to the feds and head back there with the digital and a decent zoom.

Thx Carl-I'm really starting to feel the B&W more so hopefully this path will extend.

I agree, but they are protected under the freedom of religion laws here...It is so sad, but that kind of stuff happens allot. I can't begin to tell you how often I have run into the remnants of this madness, but this was the first time I ran into people actually doing this..
