A day of contrasts

This morning, I went from shooting photos of cute, excited kids and tall ships:

to shooting photos of Police and SWAT teams dispersing crowds during a protest march that turned violent.

I missed the window smashing and crowd control (I was taking photos of the ship in North Vancouver at the time) but suffice to say, these Olympics have been anything but boring.
