Street Photography: Expression

What a picture of these polarized times. If you’ve read my last three posts, you will know that I have been photographing architectural features in the Fifth Avenue area.

On my way to those sites, I passed by Trump Tower. Across the street were these two lone protesters. Ironically, their physical positions were opposite to their political ones. The Trump supporter is on the left and on the right there is a member of the Resistance.

Despite their contrary views and the mere 12 feet or so that separated them, there was no overt personal animosity nor was there a police presence to deter any fighting. As tumultuous as today’s politics have become, it was refreshing to see these two extremes peacefully exercising their freedom of speech and expression side by side.
