Eddie Vedder, Susan Sarandon, Tim Robbins at antiwar rally, Mar. 2003

(Sue’s post on Susan Sarandon got me remembering)

Check these photos I took at an anti-war protest in March 2003 in Hollywood. It was an impromptu demo. Eddie Vedder, Susan Sarandon, Tim Robbins spoke on the sidewalk in front of the CNN building. I was pushing the portable sound system, which is why I got so close. (Polizeros was just starting then and I got about 5,000 hits off Eddie Vedder’s photo in a couple of days!)

We need to bring back this spirit of anti-war protest.

New photos on Flickr

I just published dozens on new photos on Flickr. Subjects include kittens, Maui, protests, and more.

Here’s two of my favorites.

Eddie Vedder. antiwar protest. LA.

I took this photo of Eddie Vedder with a cell phone camera at an ANSWER LA antiwar protest in 2003 or 2004. It is by far the most viewed photo I’ve blogged. Polizeros was getting just a few hundred visits a day then. I posted this photo and got 7,000 visits in two days. Also got photos of Tim Robbins, Susan Sarandon, and Pedro Almodovar (visible in this photo too) speaking at the rally.
