Taken on: 2011-03-02 22:00:44

In stark contrast to my photo last week of Sleeping in the Capitol, I once again returned to the Capitol, (ground zero, as it has been called) after my photo class to see what was happening.

First off, it was cold... only about 18F out, and when the wind picked up, it was nasty. As you can see from the picture, these were the folks that are now sleeping outside the capitol, since inside access is limited. (I believe about 75 people are still inside, but the only way you can go in is if someone leaves). I have no idea how long this will go on, but it is definitely more challenging for the protesters as the temperature drops out there, in "Walkerville" as they call it.
