- Familiar Lands -
Althought this area is certainly my most visited location, I guess I never did a landscape image there, because I'm actually always looking for wildlife in these wetlands. So, yesterday I decided to grab the wide angle instead of the telephoto lens to capture some of the beauty of spring. Hope you enjoy as much as I do everytime I go there.
Wednesday April 18th marked the 6th consecutive day of protests in Yerevan as well as other major cities in Armenia. It started at France Square where protestors marched along Baghramyan Avenue towards the national parliament. Protestors were then met by police and Pashinyan joined the group before turning back towards France square where they were again met by police attempting to block their march from continuing. They managed to move around police and continue towards Yerevan State University where more people joined. The intersections of Grigor Lusavorich Street and Arshakuniats Avenue were temporarily blocked by a sit in before stopping at Yerevan City Hall, then marching up Beirut Street stopping at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Protestors then marched to Republic Square where a massive rally took place with a 100 meter Armenian flag banner.
