Chicago Police II by spudart Chicago Police II by spudart
The annual world protests were held in chicago this year. Like 99 seattle riots, 2000 DC protests, 2001 Genoa where one died. It was quite peaceful due to the strong presence of the Chicago Police forming copwalls everywhere around the perimeter.

This shot shows them guarding the entrystairs down to the Chicago River by Pioneer Court on Michigan Ave in Chicago. I got down on the ground to shot this shot and the policeman asked me what i was doing. So I showed them the picture. They were pleased.

The higher resolution version of this photograph will be available at daprints.

I agree with the others, wonderful capture of it. Sad in a way.

Incredible composition and lighting! Did you use a wide-angle lens to get everything in focus, or a small f-stop?

I don't have much respect for the Chicago cops myself, but you made 'em look pretty damned cool here. Good job. :)

They kinda gave me the evil eye while photographing them. I wonder if they thought i was planting a bomb on the sidewalk with me crouching down like that. :-)

Great capture, and a great angle! I love that you've done this in b&w. Adds a whole lot more feeling and intense attitude to this shot, imho. I don't think colour would have had the same appeal.
