Rainbow Bright & Pride
My day started off bright and early by going to a 4 year old’s birthday party.
Then, there was the Pride Parade
It’s the 5th largest Pride Parade in the country but we actually missed the actual parade due to the birthday party, but the streets are filled and I got plenty of great shots. More to follow in another post if you want to see them.
It’s pandemonium here!
The weather is absolutely perfect: 74F, sunny, light breeze, no humidity, no bugs.
Everyone is having a blast!
And just like in Mexico when I asked the lovers’ if they were ok with me photographing them in their various states of PDA, I asked every single person I photographed today if they minded if I took their picture and everyone was very excited to pose and strut their stuff.
I was met with 100% resounding yes’es and as a photographer, that was awesome.
And as a supporter of gay rights, equality, and celebrating life, including all our differences, and respecting everyone’s lifestyle and individual paths, seeing so much Pride on the streets was awesome.
After walking around for awhile, I decided to come inside and break in my new kitchen!
By baking. With chocolate. And there was also butter and vanilla extract involved. The house is smelling great.
That was batch of Chocolate Frosting
I need to go make a snack now. I’m thinking a Microwave Blueberry Banana Oat Cake
I also have a post about Eating the Rainbow and Rainbow Colored Recipes in honor of today you may enjoy.
1. What have you been up to today?
I am off to go for a run and maybe a little at-home yoga for 20 minutes afterward. Then I have to work.
2. Have you ever been to a Pride Parade?
And previous years that I don’t have blog posts for.
I love the Parades and the whole weekend and festivities! So much fun, life, energy, vibrancy, and a celebration of diversity and just, Pride. It’s great!
As I said in the body of the post, as a supporter of gay rights, equality, and celebrating life, including all our differences, and respecting everyone’s lifestyle and individual paths, and seeing so much Pride on the streets was awesome.
Want me to post more pictures from today?
Glad you’re liking the Summer in a Box Giveaway!
