One of the drawbacks of taking photos for a living is that the family / personal /pro bono jobs you do tend to slide down your to-do list. Today I’ve been squinting at scans and negs on-and-off since about 10am. I bundled up a bunch of print orders just before the lab closed at 6pm, but since then I have been dealing with freebies. These include a few rolls I shot at the Day for Darfur march a couple of weeks back.
Insofar as you can have a nice day listening to survivors of the Holocaust, the massacres in Rwanda, and the slaughter in Sudan, and then protesting about the World’s timidity before a humanitarian disaster, we had a nice day. Some of the photos are excellent too, but if you couldn’t get good shots in that light you deserved to have your camera seized by the police. The full gallery is here.

Fascinated by the person holding up a board with various typed messages on it. Resistance to any invasion of national sovereignty is justified eh? Maybe she should be invited to a Euston meeting. Was she a one-woman counter-demonstration?
Great photos by the way. Nice to see Twiggy out and about …
Yes, she was. And it’s the picture of her and the guy from the Muslim Parliament going eye-to-eye that the magazine is after.
It took me a good ten minutes to figure out you were talking about Stephen Twigg then—and I went to college with him.
Bless you for your concern for Darfur.
Several of us have decided to begin a RESCUE DARFUR FAST. One of us began 5 days ago, and several others today. Links below for the details.
Nothing less than a worldwide fast-until-the-genocide-stops will be enough to stop it.
Nothing less will be a sufficient moral response.
Nothing less will preserve our humanity, yours and mine.
