The Peace Mime at the End of The Day

This solemn and solitary physical performer was in the crowd all day. I got glimpses of him, and a few good shots hours before and then lost sight of him. As I went to pay my respects at the fence, I saw him one last time as he held up his banner, and then folded it up and walked away, never saying a word to anyone the whole day. For some reason he embodies for me both the party and the funeral aspects of this gathering. The "Wall of Crosses" is about 40-50 yards wide.
