There are times…..today that it seems as everyone is protesting…and speaking just for me it was my generation in the 60’s that for the most part started civil disorder…….. I as a young man with no real life experience always was happy with someone that wanted to give me something for free……. I have faded memories of the summer of Love…..1967…. and the summer 1968 my memories of the heartache that went along with that year and how we would sit and talk with our friends about how will we have a future…..it seemed as if we had no future….but for most of the protest we really never wanted to destroy things break windows steal things…..with all of the violence in today’s protest I for the most part could not tell you what they are protesting……and the minute I see fires or windows being broken…..I turn away….. I was very close during the 1% protest in Oakland…..and was amazed at the face most protester did not know what they were protesting…….but the other night I was out taking photos and I seen this lady on the corner in china town… I decided to do something I rarely do…..talk to someone on the street that I may or might take a photo of….I asked her why she was doing this….what she told me broke my heart….and it was so personal  I’m not going to repeat it…..because her protest was that of a promise she made…….and for many years she has been keeping that promise…..and as I walk away I said “Image That….Someone keeping their promise……..sign_DSF3560_5017
