Vancouver, BC, has been celebrating it’s Pride Week since 1988. Today, we all can be proud together, as Canadians. This is a simple blog post for you to look at some of the photos I captured last weekend.
It’s Sunday July 5th, and all four crosswalks at the corner of Pandora Avenue and Broad Street have been painted in colours of the rainbow. Victoria’s City hall has raised the rainbow flag and not unlike the rest of Canada, Victoria celebrates its Pride Week.
My goal on this day was to capture the vibrant colours of the crosswalks as participants passed by in their equally colourful costumes. The reception to my photography was more than just friendly, it was lovingly welcomed. My perspective was from up high, looking downward not only at the people, but also to capture them against the backdrop of the brightly coloured crosswalks.
Again, I used my Fuji XT-1 on a monopod, which gave me a point of view that no one else had.
Here are a few of my favourite images from the afternoon.
