|The bemused band of onlookers outnumbered the demonstrators by at least 5 to 1, and the police looked on, their state of boredom clearly visible.
A few of the other onlookers were snapping away at the demonstrators as well. In the end, I found that the police presented themselves are more interesting photographic subjects than the demonstrators. They also did not seem to mind my attention, when I had my camera clearly pointed in their direction for a while. – That’s a gold star for the Victoria police for not harassing photographers.
