Thirty Days – Day Nine – Protesting America

Tonight, while walking back from having a discussion with my friends, we stumbled upon a protest against homosexuality, and a counter-protest against bigotry on the other side of the street.  The police seemed to be pressuring the activists to cool it, and the signs went away.  As one of the anti-homosexuality protestors began to put away her dress made out of the American flag, I captured this image, using an intentionally slow shutter speed (sometimes, I take risks, and sometimes, they pay off). Just a typical night in Columbia, Missouri.
