7-15-13 Candlelight Vigil

This is not the post I prepared for today. You will see that tomorrow. At 8:45 I discovered that there would be a neighborhood candlelight vigil for Trayvon Martin at West Harlem Piers Park which is at 128th Street and the river. So off I went. It was indeed primarily a neighborhood vigil, organized out of one of the big apartment buildings near the park. It was very inter-racial, very peaceful, very much pointed at Stand Your Ground and gun laws and not at George Zimmerman. “He is a symptom. He is not the cause.” I had dashed out of the house and did not have my off camera flash so I was pushing the camera and lens very hard. Here are some faces from the vigil.
