I found out about the big pillow fight several days ago and decided I'd go shoot it. I arrived and there didn't seem to be much organization, not even the NYPD really knew what was going to happen, they only knew where the event would be officially started. So, at 3:00 sharp I was standing in the middle of what was soon to be a feather-saturated melee.
I took almost 800 photos with my M9 and shot a roll of B&W film with my M4.
Somewhere in the mess one of the aperture blades in my 10.5cm Nikkor got knocked out of whack so until that can get fixed next week it's a fixed f/2.5 lens.
Overall, I think the event went off really well. There were only a few very minor injuries I think. The worst thing I saw was a photographer who got his camera smashed into his face which cut up his nose and eyebrow a bunch. A little war wound for the water cooler.
Here are a few of my shots. Post yours if you were there!
