I'm Actually Rather Cross About This

'I'm Actually Rather Cross About This' was one of the placards spotted at today's 'People's Vote' march through central London to Parliament.  The reported attendance figure is 600,000 - around 1% of this nation's total population - so it was a major event, by any standards.

I'm not commenting on the politics of it - and ask that you don't (it's not allowed in this forum).  But here are some snaps from the day.

I mainly used the M.Zuiko 45mm f/1.8 and the Laowa 7.5mm f/2.0.  I also used the Panaleica 25mm f/1.4 and the M.Zuiko 75mm f/1.8.  In hindsight, I should have brought the Laowa out sooner.  I almost forgot I had it with me, and it was a moment of genuine pleasure when I first thought of using it.

The depth of field scale on the Laowa is really useful for this sort of street photography.  I set the aperture to f/5.6, and the focus to hyperfocal, then used it as a point-and-shoot.

It was an unseasonally sunny day, so lighting was bright, but harsh and contrasty.  I always grumble about shooting in such conditions.

Here are the snaps:
