It started as a peaceful and beautiful day in NYC, then all of the sudden around 2 p.m. a massive pillow fight began in union square. I went over there to see if I could get any decent pictures. As soon as the fight began I ran into the middle of the people. It was one of the craziest events I have ever shot. I kept getting smacked by pillows even thought there were rules about hitting people with cameras. This made it even harder to shoot because when I looked back at my pictures many were black because someone smacked me with a pillow right as I released the shutter. The fight lasted for just a little over an hour and by the end of it Union Square was covered in feathers.
