Revsiting J21 — Occupy The Corporations — Occupy Faith was out and brought with them some fiery energy. This is Dr. Ray Blanchette rallying activists against corporate domination. A personal highlight of the day’s rally was having Occupy Faith bless snow and gather activists in exorcising a Bank of America branch, slathering the building with the “holy water”.

A protester handed President Barack Obama a note while shaking hands along a rope line in New Hampshire today.  AP photographer Charlie Dharapak smartly zoomed in so you can read the note for yourself.

For those of you who like to know (myself included) the technical information on how Charlie shot the pictures, here it is. Both frames were made with a Canon 1D Mark IV with a 70-200mm zoom lens. The exposure was 1/250 @ f2.8 rated at 1600iso. The first image was shot at 70mm and the close up was shot at 160mm.

She is another of my Zuccotti Park heros. My wife and I met her in early October and she said she took a semester off from college studies to come out and be a part of history. This kind of thing is happening all the time — people so excited to be a part of the movement they’re willing to shape their lives around it. And not just young people… activists who had their hand in shaping the 60’s have been telling me “I’ve been waiting for this!”
