050:365 Self-portrait: shadow of the activist I used to be.
I was a volunteer escort at the local clinic during a particularly blue time in my life. My only role was to walk women past the protesters and safely into the clinic. After a while my mornings became conflicted with too many activities and I had to step back from my volunteerism.
I tried taking pictures of the meancing protesters yesterday but my efforts didn't pan out. The pictures were blah. The grim faced old men that I remember from those cold, early mornings made a point of smiling at the camera in an unnerving way. I may try to get back there some day to reshoot. In the meantime, I walked by the protesters' counselling house today where they keep plastic fetuses and other misleading propaganda in the window.
