Photographer's Note

15 November 2005, Carlton Gardens, Melbourne

"Howard's a [email protected]%&!" these three characters were shouting as they stumbled down the path leading away from the Carlton Gardens, in Melbourne's inner north, after the November 15 National Day of Protest against changes to national Industrial Relations legislation.

Pretty much a grabshot-- I thought I had a tighter crop in the viewfinder as I ran towards them but I guess not in the end. I'm not happy with the lack of any interest in the background.

For more information, see my note that accompanies "Faces in Protest"

The rest of my shots from this event (I regretably didn't take as many as I anticipated) are more formal portraits of significant participants which I feel are probably too specific and contextual for TE so this will be the only other shot from this protest. I was there as a participant and not merely an observer so I wasn't really on the lookout for 'moments'. Maybe next time.
