Today's Tea Party

| 2 Comments
Finishing off processing a bunch of the images from today's Tea Party. I have a Nikon D90 and prefer to shoot in the raw file format as that gives me the most options for editing -- raw is basically a dump of what the sensor sees without any correction for ambient lighting or exposure. That way, I can work with it at my leisure instead of allowing the camera to decide what comprises a good photo. The downside is that I have to "process" each exposure in a digital darkroom and this takes time. Here are just a few shots from today -- the satellite connection has been running very very s..l..o....w...... for the last couple of days so I will upload more of them from the office.

More tomorrow. There were a couple people from the Ron Paul collective. Some people gave one-finger waves as they drove by but the number of car horns and waves was amazing for such a liberal town. Almost all commercial vehicles honked -- the big trucks were a joy to hear. I stayed for about 45 minutes to see if there was any cleaning up needed. Some people were picking up old soda cans and cigarette packs but there was no litter from the Tea Party that I could see.

What's the deal with the sunshine and all the folks in shirtsleeves? We got snowed on- hard, in Salt Lake City! I wore long johns, a flannel shirt, fleece and a wind/water tight shell and gloves! Still glad I went though.

Hello Mr. Synthstuff, very good pictures. They provide a good sense of the crowd and the signs.

I was hoping to attend the Tea Party today, but family duties intervened and kept me from going.

Thank you very much for reporting on the protest. I found your website through Google. Such a huge crowd, and just one out of hundreds across the nation. A great day!
