scenes from the DC Women's march

In recent months I've been shifting more of my attention as a photographer to crowd-supported projects through Patreon, a crowd-funding site for artists. This month, my patrons helped to support a trip to Washington D.C. to document the Women's march -- I was able to stay with friends while there and keep overall costs very low.

thought that some of you who aren't on Facebook might enjoy looking through up-close-and-personal photos of the March. And those who wouldn't enjoy that, well, that's fine too.

this should work even if you're not logged in to Facebook. If it's not accessible -- please let me know and I'll find an alternate way to post it.

    Nice pics Scott.
    Two things I noticed- some very witty signs, and, a good number of men out there supporting the women!

    I would never include my kid in that, some of those signs would need a lot of explaining.

    ok, it should allow you to see them anyway, but since it apparently isn't, as soon as I get a flickr version up online, I'll post the link to that.

    having raised two sons, there's nothing at that march I'd have felt uncomfortable explaining to my kids -- by the time they're old enough to read the signs, they're old enough to know a little basic biology.

    I'd have a lot harder time explaining the current administration to them.

    this flickr site should not have any issues.

    Maybe he would have a trouble with the one about the clitoris because he doesn't know how to find one.
    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    Crooow:This music would work better with women in bikinis shaking all over the place. I guess that's true of any music really.

    Now, can we get back to the photos? Good work, Scott. Nice to see a sense of humor mixed in. I know they are angry and hurt about their rights, but it is good that most of them appear to put that in check and be positive and cheerful.
