A Few Days In Madison

I just spent a few days working in Madison WI covering protests, so I've been slacking off a bit with posts this week but I think I'm allowed when doing 12 hour days getting up at 5AM.
Here is a shot of me doing sound. Special thanks to Chris Hibben for getting me on this job, and taking the shot.

Its been interesting being a fly on the wall and having a small part in this historic event.  Yes some of the protesters have been in the building for at least a few days, and it was getting a bit smelly in there. The insides of the capitol building are totally covered in signs, some from pretty far off places in support of the people here. 
This is a time lapse I shot on a GoPro HD with LCD screen. I used a panavise suction cup base with ball head on the polished stone railing just about the center of the building. This is about 4 hrs condensed into 15 secs ending where they got into a big circle to channel energy.
