TIME Person(s) of the Year: The Protester

The Michigan Capitol last March. One of the most amazing sights I ever saw.

Excellent choice from TIME Magazine:

"Massive and effective street protest" was a global oxymoron until — suddenly, shockingly — starting exactly a year ago, it became the defining trope of our times. And the protester once again became a maker of history.

Haven't had time to read the whole thing yet - but they are right, and it has been a global phenomenon.

(On a personal note - very busy right now, posting is going to be very sporadic to non-existent for the time being. I want to thank everyone who has been reading, hope to be back again someday on a limited basis, maybe with some lovely new photos for you... until then, have a great holiday season, and all the best on the New Year!)
