This photo was taken on the first celebration of Earth Day on April 22, 1970. I was at 14th Street and Union Square. It was a beautiful sunny day and everybody was enjoying the moment. I was wandering around with my trusty little half frame Olympus capturing as much as I could. This was my first camera, I was young, loving and living life; documenting and witnessing history.....

    This is really cool because it does such a great job of capturing the life of the scene.
    I think that it might be a stronger photo if you reduced the graininess, but it is nonetheless really good.
