Photographer's Note

This photo was taken on April 6 - on my last full day in Bangkok.

The atmosphere around the center of Bangkok was like a street carnival - even though everyone was being warned to avoid that area.

The only problem I had was trying to take photos and wave at the friendly "Red Shirts" at the same time.

This photo was taken from a pedestrian bridge, and for me it symbolized the "peacefulness" of the protesters that I saw that day.

Unfortunately, things became more confrontational and on April 10 twenty five people died in violent clashes with police.
