Union rally
A rally to try to prevent our governor from gutting our unions. This guy is from the United Auto Workers, and, seeing that I was nervous in the crowd, told me to stick next to him and he would keep me from harm. As it turned out the rally was quite peaceful.

Picture This #456 ~ Glimpse

Hi everyone, this is Mitch. I'll be your host this week. I've been trying to think of a theme we haven't  done before and think I've come up with one. The theme is GLIMPSE. As defined in the dictionary it is "a momentary or partial view" or "to see something briefly or partially". Quite often one can catch a glimpse of a distant object through several closer objects. Hope you have fun with this. Here are mine:

1) A glimpse of Picton Castle through many of the bushes in it's wonderful gardens.
Castle Glimpse

2) A glimpse of pillars through a doorway at Tintern Abbey.
Glimpse Of Pillars

3) A glimpse of the old house through two archways at the National Botanical Gardens Of Wales.
Double Glimpse

4) A glimpse of the cafe through the flowers of Stackpole Gardens.
