The View from Raleigh -- Jan Berger puts a paper mache mask on in preparation for the protest against fracking on Tuesday, March 19th, 2013. Protestors against SB76, a bill that would allow fracking permitting to begin as early as March 1, 2015, gather in downtown Raleigh, N.C.
How I got the photo -- I was trying to look for something beyond the classic protesting photos with signs, so I wandered around the edges of the crowd and found this scene. It was shot with a wider lens, in order to incorporate the light and shadow by the tree, as well as the size of the mask. CAROLYN VAN HOUTEN — firstname.lastname@example.org Buy Photo
