While walking back from the hospital, where my father-in-law will spend the night, I met a group of “dump Trump” protesters rallying down University Ave. where it crosses highway 163; in San Diego’s Hillcrest neighborhood. They’re a decidedly angry lot. Sometimes emotion is so thick to be visceral. I snapped a few photos with iPhone 7 Plus.

I stopped to bang out this quick post and pic on the smartphone. The group was louder than larger. If 100 people strong, I’d be shocked. But counting wasn’t  easy; they pushed up on to the sidewalk to flash plackards at cars passing below, and I worried someone would knock the iPhone from my hands.

I slightly cropped the Featured Image on-device and in Apple Photos applied the Process filter, which draws out the text on the forward sign and adds some rustic ambience to the march. Vitals: f/1.8, ISO 20, 1/2817 sec, 3.99mm. I rushed the first three captures, trying to get broader view of the protesters before they moved into the shadows. Capture time: 3:30 p.m. PST, and somehow this short post took another 30 minutes. Well, I did take time moving to a quiet spot to write, and I had to choose and edit the pic.
