good photos of rally, march, indymedia and freeway action

I recommend that anyone interested in examining the series of 8 pictures of citizens lying down on Interstate 5 I recommend visit my web site instead of viewing the pictures here. The way you have to click in and out of them here makes it impossible to follow the sequence of events. I only put them up here so that Indymedia has access to them.

TECHNICAL NOTE regarding the freeway shots:

I'm curious to see if the expensive cameras that other folks have were able to get sharper pictures than my tourist camera. Luckily, I had brought my pocket four inch tripod or I would have had nothing to show you but mush. As it is the dazzling lights of the cars on the freeway sort of distract in a good way from the way the slow shutter blurs everything that is not holding perfectly still.

that I-5 series was excellent. i wish i could have been there. just out of curiosity, how long did the blockade last before the cops came and broke it up?
