The capitol building of Lincoln Nebraska perhaps to some stands in an imposing manner, towering over the myriad of small colorful tents on a rainy grayish afternoon.

Seemingly indestructible does the giant behemoth appear, looming over them, watching them, plotting legislation and laws against them, ...those dirty hippies,...all needing to take showers, get jobs, pay taxes..each and every last one of them....

The occupiers do not seem really all that impressed with with it...they really dont have time to think about the giant odd shaped monstrosity dwarfing their very existence...many are busy, with other things like working 2 jobs,
keeping clean and taking on enough nutrition to remain healthy, all while engaged in Non Violent demonstration and action for equality and basic rights for all, ..they do not have time to consider its existence,..if said building is mentioned, they shrug it off with a laugh, What?, THAT thing?....that ?..what about it?...
Would you like some cream with your coffee?..there are brownies over there, pointing while stirring a pot of broccoli and 4 cheese soup...will you be staying for the evening meal?..you are most welcome to stay...do you need anything?, we have extra hats and some gloves..

They didnt try to push any hippie stuff on me, nor did they ask about my political views, or go on acrazy rant about getting money out of politics etc, separation of business and state, etc,etc,... they wanted to feed me and offer me warm things for my head and hands..concerned for the well being of others

Camping out 61 days, asking for not a hand out but offering a hand up...

All while in the shadow of the big odd shaped stone "Thing" with the tiny sower on the very tip, all sowing his seeds onto the now cement covered plains where nothing much grows...

This photograph was taken facing south in the middle of the Occupy Lincoln encampment.

    Nicely captured, Steven, and an insightful look into one of the encampments.
