Otis Williams

Last Line of Defence.


The 40th Anniversary of the Tent Embassy was a day of celebrations. The day was going as planned and I was snapping away trying to capture the moment that I hope would tell a story.
I had a gut feeling that if I held out, then I would get something. Before I knew their was a rush to a restaurant and a protest was taking place. Yes it was aggressive and hectic with a lot of yelling.

But as the media portrayed it, their was never a mobbing or attack on these leaders and once the police took control, I was able to capture this image. LAST LINE OF DEFENCE "Powerful n Symbolic".
