Paddle in Seattle - peaceful protest against oil drilling by Shell in Arctic

May 17, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

I want to add my modest contribution to visual coverage of ShellNo Paddle in Seattle - peaceful demonstration of disapproval. It is time to invest resources into alternative energy research and lessen our dependency on oil.

I used tiny waterproof Nikon Coolpix AW130 camera for both stills and video.
