I like the photo documents of Patti / Patricia Fogarty shot in New York. She caught wonderful smiling faces in Manhattan: “ONE DAY IN A CITY” – but also riot police: arresting photographers who tried to make some pictures featuring the Occupy Wall Street movement. Every week the police gangs produce a new package of arrested photographers and confiscate their cameras. And every next week there are brand new iPhones again and even old cameras fit for the work as a “under-cover-agent” …
FREEDOM OF SPEECH – photo by Patti / Patricia Fogarty
another photo shot by Patti, coming from London, Hyde Park, Speakers’ Corner to a strange New York, a city with oppression vs. photographers and speakers:

comment by Patti:
Dear Frizz, More than happy to give my permission to use my photos, thank you so much for asking!
More than happy to promote freedom of speech. And photographic opportunities without getting arrested . . . .
dear Patti, I just read in the “Devil’s Dictionary” (Ambrose Bierce):
“WALL STREET = A symbol of sin for every devil to rebuke.
That Wall Street is a den of thieves is a belief
that serves every unsuccessful thief in place of a hope in Heaven…”
request from me to the dailypost team, New York:
please make an interview with Patti / nylondaze (wordpress) in New York!
