This is Andrea Slobodian with Sun News. Despite appearing on national TV, and covering other people, she feels that taking her picture violates her privacy. Please see the description of this image for the full story.
Can you tell the woman in front of the camera doesn't want her picture taken? You can read the fully story here.
An apparent Aryan Guard supporter tried to dress up (literally and verabally) the group's cause, by insisting it was all about supporting one's "tribe". If you look at the prior photo in my stream, you'll see quite the contrast with a fellow AG supporter. No tatoos. No threats. No assault. Just a new pretty spin, on something old and ugly.
Light wasn't that great, since the sky was cloudy. So, it helps if the subject has their own light.
The Thanksgiving Memory Walk and Run was held on Sunday, October 11, 2009, starting and ending at Eau Claire Market in Calgary. It raises funds for the Alzheimer Society of Calgary to support dementia care programs and services.

I did actually get a full shot with both people, but liked this crop more.
Protesters gathered on Stephen Avenue Mall on June 23, 2009, outside The Bay, to show support for demonstrators in Iran, who rejected the recent election as rigged, and have been severely repressed.
This is some of the media covering the event. I liked this photo, even though it wasn't in sharp focus, so I decided to mess with it a bit, and use the "Pencil Sketch" function.
Katie Schneider wrote about the event for the Calgary Sun, in "Calgary celebs compete to raise research bucks".

Denise Ogonoski (right) was one of the members of Students for a Free Tibet that were deported from China during the Beijing Olympics. She spoke at the rally, here at Olympic Plaza, and later on, tried waving a Tibetan flag up on a light pole outside the Chinese consulate, which got her a ride in a Calgary Police Service car. Here, she's being interviewed by Katie Schneider of the Calgary Sun.
Stephanie Norn, one of the the buskers, is interviewed by a reporter.
Calgary Sun reporter Katie Schneider interviews Collette Lemieux at the wrap-up of the anti-war rally. Lemieux is with the Canada Peace Alliance, and helped organize the peach rally.
The person off-picture to the left is being interviewed. He was the sole person I saw at the rally openly supporting troop involvement in Afghanistan and Iraq. Unfortunately, he objected to display of his picture on the internet. So, I deleted my pics of him from FlickR, and kept this one, but cropped it.
