Interesting Dichotomy In Downtown LA This Past Weekend

With the Sky Lofts building in the background, and amongst many other slick new luxury lofts for sale or lease signs, these protestors were out in support of the fight over Labor issues in Wisconsin. They were out trying to protect the "American Dream" and "Workers Rights," while I was out showing high end lofts to new client's. I was trying to get to a showing, but traffic wasn't moving at all, so I parked in a lot and walked to the building. I had my camera on me, so was able to get some shots of the protest, as I passed straight through it. It was an interesting dichotomy and experience to say the least...
