THis was taken on the recent London GTG, he is a peace activist who is currently camped out in front of the House of Parliament. He has been a peace activist for 7 years. His name is "The Ant", which is his officially recognised name. I really wanted to take a picture of his friend, but he was a bit mental and went a bit mad at me when I asked him as SaraR will testify to.

Come on! They're "PEACE" activists for crying out loud - what's to be afraid of?? ;-)

There is almost a sense of irony here. The b&w make this a very foreboding shot. It seems like it is a war zone instead of a peace rally. I like that, though.

Oh my, he looks quite the opposite, like an anarchist. It's probably the apparent disorderly background that is influencing my optimism.
