Demonstrators Form Human Peace Sign While Blocking Traffic During Demonstration Against US Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan
Demonstrators hold hands to form a peace symbol at Broad and Cherry Streets. Several groups including about 1,000 high school and college student peace protesters had marched through Center City against the impeding US invasion of Iraq, which came a few weeks later.
I found my way into a nearby parking garage to get the high perspective necessary to get this picture. I think a lot of local news photographers compile a mental inventory of easily accessible places where we can get high shots. I know I did.

It was unusual that my ISO was set to 500. I usually jumped from 400 to 800 to 1,600, replicating the same steps I knew from shooting common films for decades before. The lens was probably my 80-200 Nikon zoom.
