Backstory: Antonia Cedrone was bright, funny and charming – and a dedicated Legal Observer. National Lawyers Guild Legal Observers truly are guardian angels for protesters. This is one of my favourite shots of someone I had the privilege to partner with, as a Guild L.O. and photographer respectively, on many occasions. RIP Antonia.

Locale: Midtown (Manhattan) circa 2011

Equipment: Nikon D50

Entertainment

Shot Of The Day: October 22, 2017





QOTD:
How can I sit and eat my tea,
With all that blood flowing from the television.
At a quarter to six,
I watch the news,
Eating, eating all my food
As I sit watching the red spot
In the egg which looks like
All the blood you dont see on the television.

— Gang Of Four

Locale: Clifton

Equipment: Nikon D5500 / Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR
