A protest against Ringling Brothers Circus, outside of Madison Square Garden.

This was a very busy sidewalk, so the hard part was standing back far enough to include both signs (the MSG sign and the protest banner) and then pressing the shutter in the rare moments when no one was blocking the view.

Fabulous capture! What drama! Perfectly done! I am sure it's a good cause and very serious, but that elephant man.... hahahaha!

I just LOVE this image! It's so bitter and angry and that skinny furious elephant just makes it

I used to work for a circus (Carson & Barnes) and they treated their animals 1,000's of times better than their people. I don't know about Ringling though.

Very intriguing. Who'd have thought an elephant suit could be made to look angry. And the guy on the left looks REALLY angry. Very good use of DOF.
