The big day - Pride Parade

Pride was Hot - in more ways than one! I didn't last the whole parade - the sun got to me. However, I was there for about 2 hours and managed some shots. It was difficult because we were on the wrong side of the street (the sunny side) and getting a good exposure between the heads of people around me meant I had a very small window to shoot in. Once the parade started going by, people would just hold out their cameras and video cameras and often they'd be in the frame. I decided next year to take the "behind the scenes of the Parade" or the beginning or end of the Parade. I enjoyed the street photography part of it much more. It's all a learning process.

The lucky ones; on the shady side, and in a building near toilets and fridges and chairs.

This is my hometown on a Sunday (granted, not a typical Sunday!) I like this photo for a lot of reasons. It is famous Toronto street Yonge Street , the headquarters of the iconic Bay department store is visible at the top of the street, the crowds, the energy. #sfgirlbybaycontest

Love the right arm gesture and the scarf

LGB Canadians can serve openly in the military

I'm not sure why this has anything to do with Pride, but it's a very inclusive day

My camera was hunting for AF for some reason - this shot could have been better on MF

What's the best thing after a long hot march on the pavement in the July sun? A good friend.
