Taking Things Seriously

I have to wonder how you take things seriously when someone shows up at a rally dressed like this.  I am not even sure which side he was on, or if he wasn't taking sides and simply providing comic relief.  Anyways, I think it is quite clear that noone, especially not an out of shape, skinny 60 year old, is going to crash through this character and the wall of police.

Meticulously composed, Darren, with the contrast crystal clear between the serious police Phalanx, and this goon... Intriguing scene, typical I guess of Taiwanese politics which sometimes comes close to Bozo the Clown from what I can gather...;o) Happy New Year to you and yours, Francis

Its a funny shot and I like the wide angle view on the wall of Police with just a great FG character to bring it all together.

Cool post.

haha, the odd one out... he seems to be part of the police lineup... even his flag is the same blue a the shields... i got some shots of him too, the following day, in a bowler hat, same moustache, waving a huge black flag with skull and bones, taunting the dpp supporters... he later sang with the kmt 'gang'... a good perspective and a funny photo...
