  3. that's a great pic, you've framed it brilliantly to include all the bold banners and slogans, it gets the point across perfectly

    Great shots Dean - I love this series too. That is one scary dude - there is nothing as dangerous as someone who is convinced he knows the ONLY way..... BTW is that a pistol holster on his belt?

    That is a plumb bob holder. I wonder if he is a surveyor when he's not preaching. Kind of strange. This is a nice series. They look very fervent in their beliefs. I don't really agree with this type of confrontational evangelism. But I don't think they are a danger to anyone. In some cases it appears that they are being threatened. Again this a good series that does not show favoritism to either side.

  6. The tool belt question comes up often.
    1. Jesus was a carpenter so they like wearing something that Jesus would wear if he was around today.
    2. The holder is perfect for the sign pole when they are walking. The other pockets are for tracts and other stuff they like to have one them.


    Thanks everyone of the nice comments. I'm going to add a statement to my PBase site explaining I am for Freedom of Speech and will support any group that takes to the street even if I personally disagree with what they are saying.

    Another great image to add to the series Dean. I just had a look at the inside edge of the billboard he is wearing. Does it mention 'Measurebators' on there? Or is it my imagination.:biggrin:
     
  8. Everything looks spelled correctly to me. The signs are created by the national group and are used on a lot of college campuses.

  9. Dean, you certainly caught the emotion in that shot. Well done.
