Huntington Beach

What an astonishing photo this is. Perfect.

Huntington Beach riot, 2013. No idea who took the shot.

Maybe it’s the blurred movement. Or the figures in the middle, in a circle. Or maybe it’s the kid up on the bricks, pushing. The kid with no shirt, pulling. The kid with his back turned, seeing something. The kids with their faces covered, who won’t be arrested. The guy in the back, filming. Maybe it’s the swirl of violence, the lawlessness. Maybe it’s that ridiculous little fire hydrant doing absolutely nothing, nearly ruining the composition. Or helping it. Maybe it’s the American flag trunks. Or maybe it’s the futile STOP.
