Treyvon Martin Protest in Anchorage


I was downtown today having lunch at the  F Street Station. on my way back to my car I saw a large group of people with signs. I actually had not been aware that a demonstration was planned for the day. Upon getting a closer look I saw the that they were protesting the verdict in the Zimmerman trial. Now years ago I used to shoot as a stringer for some newspapers. I don't do any professional photojournalism anymore because its so tough to make any money in the print news industry. However I still love to take these kinds of pictures and I never miss an opportunity to do some intresting documentary photos. Fortunately I Had my Ricoh camera in my jeans pocket. I proceeded to run ahead of the march and snap some shots.
