Busy City

Posted by
Dokmateo (Madrid, Spain) on 20 June 2011 in Miscellaneous.

Thousands of people gathered in several cities in Spain on May 15 to demand what they called 'real democracy' and protesters have vowed to occupy central squares in several Spanish cities like Barcelona,Valencia and Madrid. A few hundred demonstrators camped out there overnight and it lasted 28 days before they finally ended the long day protest. Here is the link1 and link2 for more story about the protest.
I took time to make a documentary shoots here in Madrid,Puerta del Sol during those days and share some of the moments and encounters I had there. I hope in this manner, I could show my empathy and support to the cry of the protesters.

Thanks for viewing my photos. Rest assured that I read all your comments and very well appreciated.

I like the use of selective colouring - helps to emphasize the subject - I am looking forward to seeing more, as well

Well seen and cool treatment with the selective colour. Fascinating to see here that the camp has its own library!

Love the selective colouring here. It brings our eyes directly to what you want us to look at.
Well done Dokmateo!

A bookstore or library with couches and lots of books. This encampment is like a moveable city. Nice selective color.
