Happy St. Patrick's Day to those celebrating today!
This photo is from a Flash Mob Pillow Fight at Bergen Place in the heart of the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle yesterday. Have there been Flash Mob events of some kind in your city? In the case of this pillow fight, an organizer sent emails inviting people to come with concealed pillows at 2:22 PM. At that time, a whistle sounded and all these people who had gathered in the area suddenly whipped out their pillows and started clobbering each other. Midway through the 5 minutes allotted, feathers exploded everywhere. When the time was up a whistle blew and people stopped and walked away quickly, clapping and cheering. Someone had tipped off the news media, as two stations had cameramen there. For more photos, see my Flickr site.
