15'000 of Greta's followers in the streets of Zurich the other day. We all know it is five minutes before twelve and yet I can't completely warm up with this group although I can understand their fear.
Too many people in this world that all own a mobile phone, drive a car, drink from PET bottles, spend hours in front of the pc, travel, batteries in most of the toys etc.
I love to do docu type images. Although I fear masses I forgot all about them. Luckily I had the cam with me.
Rainbow for climate? Confused young people. Unless Greta is one of the rainbow movement girl.
PS. How do you set expensive camera to overexpose and wash the colours out? Some of the signs carried by demonstrators are absolutely unreadable.

I love to over-expose. For me it makes it more time-less, a little like b/w. Matter of taste. Okay the settings are also sometimes not that pro-like - haha. I remind you that I made these images after work in my business outfit wearing highheels … LOL … plus I am not a pro, not that fast when it has to be fast like here etc. etc.
You do not know Greta Thunberg, the Swedish environmental activist? She has many many followers around the globe. There is an anti-movement against her too.
Not my kind of event either, even though it would be pretty cool to do these type of documentary photogrphy, but I'm too scare to get in the mix of what is going on. I have seen the marches of many kind in Laos and it scare me every time.
I guess even like a parade, I'm not all that comfortable, but I can manage that.
#'s 2 & 4 are my favorites for the close-up faces. I'm glad to see someone cares about climate change, encouraging that I only saw one white beard in the group. All the demonstrations I have seen lately are only old people relating to more political issues. Why the climate is considered political is just crazy! GLF, Pat
