People against communism

Failing to shoot the Christmas city lights, I had the opportunity to stumble upon another interesting thing: people in the street, protesting about the possible communist restoration in the upcoming presidential elections, against the censorship and manipulation in mass-media and fighting for freedom and future. Unfortunately I wasn’t prepared at all, had with me only the camera with normal (not fast) lenses, on-camera (not external) flash, no tripod, nothing. But bad photos are better than no photos…

Christmas Lights: FAIL

Knowing the old tradition of having the Christmas lights to be started in the city for the December 1st, I planned a shooting expedition in that evening, with the tripod, cable release and everything, but after freezing in the morning at the military parade, I didn’t feel like it, and postponed for a later day. Next day I felt bad about losing an opportunity, so after work did a short walk in the city with only the camera, no additional gear: surprise! the lights were still off, thanks to our incompetent city mayor, so my original decision wasn’t that bad.

At least the failure was not epic: I found a boulevard with some lights (not the city center, just a more civilised district with probably a better mayor) and, and this will be cubject of another post, people in the street protesting about the possible communist restoration in the upcoming presidential elections.
