So the other day, I posted about my bonehead moment. I figured I need to make up for my temporary lapse in judgment and capture some images today, since I was in lower Manhatan with friends from out of town.
When we arrived at Park 51, we joined a small crowd of spectators assembled across the street from the building that has garnered so much national attention over the past month or so. Protesters for and against the mosque were lined up right outside the building, with signs and props. Drivers rubbernecked, straining to get a glimpse of the goings-on. Some honked their horns and gave the thumbs-up in support.
So I whipped out the trusty Nikon, and started snapping photos. I’ll let you be the judge of the message behind the images.
