First some music:
It was tough to be an amateur photographer at the LBGTQWERTYLOLXOXO gay pride parade in San Francisco. Big crowds, hot sun. But I had a good time. Almost all of the pictures I took were taken while I held my camera above my head. Sometimes the autofocus gods were generous and sometimes they weren’t.
I like when I discover someone is looking at the camera and me:
This is Sara with the red plume. I was happy she found the picture I had taken online and sent me a message.
The Dyke March was on Saturday in the mission, my neighborhood, prior to the Sunday parade.
See the whole 87 picture set. Altogether I took a little under a thousand photos! Pardon the violent metaphor, but shooting digital is like shooting with a machine gun, whereas shooting film is like a sniper rifle.
I know, that’s kind of a horrible metaphoric thing to say, but I couldn’t think of another way to put it.
