Archives For Orlando

Because my wife felt the need to be the rally so strongly, I walked back to where we were parked (behind the Orange County Building, two blocks south) and rolled her up to a quiet spot on Lake Eola near enough to hear the speeches. I then walked back towards the band shell and just started to document the many signs and the people holding them. I’ll let the photos speak for themselves. All this was taken with the Olympus E-M10 and the M.Zuiko 14-150mm II.

Lake Eola, 21 January. The protest against the 45th president of the United State, Donald Trump. For Orlando it wasn’t a march so much as a gathering at the band shell. I got there first to reconnoiter and check out the situation. My wife was with me, but before I let her get near the place I wanted to see if it would be a risk for her or not. She’s going in for surgery next Wednesday, and the last thing I wanted was for anything to happen that might keep her from her that important appointment. As it turned out the place was energetic but very calm and polite. Following are three wide panoramas to give you some idea of the crowds. All taken with the iPhone 7 Plus (everything here is taken with the iPhone).
