Candid of a young lady who, judging by the flyer in her lap, was returning from the 'Occupy' protests associated with the Commonwealth Heads of Govt. Meeting held in Perth this week. I liked the justaposition of the somewhat cliched protester look (raggedy clothes, peace sign etc) with the mobile phone and iPod.

As usual, basic editing only. Shot in RAW and taken to ACDSee where cropped slightly, desaturated to B&W and then adjustments made to contrast and lighting. Resized, sharpened, saved as JPEG.
