This rally was held pretty much as the settlements were being dismantled.

heiko said:Hi Steve,
Although I'm a blue ribbon (if you know what that means), I like the shots very much. Great job you did. By the way, the orange ribbons are nearly gone now, after the retreat from Gaza. Keep up the good work and your postings.
Wilk said:Hi Heiko,
I can sort of guess what blue ribbon is. Just want to lay down a disclaimer here... I know how passionate the powers that be here are about keeping politics etc., out of the fourm. I just wanted to say that whatever I shoot with my amateur PJ hat, I do so as an impartial observer. If my PJ work comes from one side of a particular issue, that is simply because that side of the issue is the only one exercizing their first ammendment rights in a public fashion. I know you didn't make that statement to make things political, just to say you're for the other side, that's fine with me. I just wanted to be sure everyone knows that the passion is for shooting protests and rallies, and does not come from a political passion or view.
At any rate, I'm glad you enjoyed the pics! :tongue:
heiko said:Thanks for your reply and the disclaimer, Steve,
I didn't want to imply you're taking a side. I know this forum isn't political, and it's good this way. I also had a look at your website and enjoyed your powerful images of people at rallies and protests. You are doing good job at street photography - show us more!
