Occupy Portland, Maine encampment

This is an 18 image 360 degree little planet projection from the center of the encampment.
This sign was the first thing that captured my attention as I drove by this morning.
This is a 10 or 12 image panorama from the other side of the encampment--I just liked this nifty take on a street sign that someone did:  Justice Way, Liberty Street, Freedom Avenue anyone?  :-)
I liked the big Occupy sign graffiti'd on the back of this tent.  And the hay bales interested me--must be insulation?
A closer up detail shot of the street sign.
This morning, I decided to stop by Portland's version of Occupy Wall Street in Lincoln Park on Congress Street.  I was amazed by the tent city that is thriving there, the neatness, and the passion evidenced by the signs and posters here and there.  But I wondered where everyone was?  Maybe a lot of the people have day jobs and are only there at night?  Or perhaps it is because they are busy applying for a permit to be able to stay there?  On their website  it said that there was going to be a general assembly tonight at six, but I figured there wouldn't be much beautiful light then. . .  So I may go back this weekend to see if there are more protesters out and about then.  So stay tuned!

I am always amazed by your photos but the 18 image 360 degree is awe inspiring! I hope that you submit it for contests. there was a National Geographic contest "between two worlds". I wish it hadn't ended!!!
