Protests and books in Washington, DC

It was an interesting “pick your poison” day in downtown Washington, D.C. with a the huge antiwar protest that brought more than 150,000 people into the streets (says the Washington Post) and a huge National Book Festival.

I took my camera off the shelf for the first time in a while and descended to the Mall to capture both the antiwar activists and bookworms.

Below you’ll find a couple shots from the march, and a stunning excerpt from what I like to call “The Thomas Friedman Show” (just look at the interpreter trying to keep up).

I uploaded full photo albums of both events on my Flickr page:

– for National Book Festival pictures (including one of Jonathan Safran Foer) click here.
