I’ve uploaded the last of my 2MB Demo pics, from the last big night (July 5th), here.
Oops! Some were from the Catholic “Emergency” Mass, and thus are now in this set. Some were from the last big night, July 5th, in this set. I found some pics from earlier on, too — the best guess I can make is June 11th, in this set. I added a couple to the first set also, shots which I found just now in the wrong folder. And of all things, a shot from the trip I made to the local temple on the Buddha’s Birthday with a couple of friends. There’s a pic in there that made me think of the banner at Gusts of Popular Feeling, but it may just be a trick of the mind — not to say a Vulcan mind trick:
Not much from the evening of July 5th, I’m afraid, and they’re all a bit grainy… I was exhausted as it was — and left the camera on a very high ISO setting — and was, to be utterly frank, rather tired of the demos in general. And I’d only gone a handful of times as it was!
I did wish I had my camera on my the other night, though. Lime and I had just gone shopping in Dongdaemun for some new work clothes for her (new job!) and we saw a bedegraggled pack of diehards marching in plastic raincoats. Just about everyone had a flag of some kind, which tells you something — having a flag means you’re definitely a member of some organization or other.
All I could think was, “Man, if you do it every day, how’re you even gonna have the strength to do anything when you really need to? You’ll be going, Nah, I’m tired, I did my part, and I just wanna have a beer and watch Misuda today…’ and that’s gonna be when nationalized health insurance goes out the window. Dudes, go home!”
Lime, for her part, just shook her head at them and said, “Let’s go.”
