As I was photographing the protest in part 1, I realized that the event presented an extraordinary opportunity. In general, women "of a certain age" avoid the camera. I know; I am one. But by putting on their own event in their very own style, the grandmothers and friends at the Oakland recruiting station were volunteering to be looked at and captured by the camera.
I think we are beautiful. Here are some of us who were out there today.
