ROE8 Protests (quest to be a photojournalist)
9 February 2017

In my first blog post I mentioned I would be actively attempting to become a press photographer this year. This morning, news of ROE8 protests had me down at Bibra Lake in the cold rain (I forgot to pack a rain jacket) and taking photos. Below are the pictures I made:
