Madrid and the Matterhorn

I went to Madrid for the first time last month, and sadly I wasn't able to get out and see the city the way that I wanted too and take some proper photos due to a wicked bad head cold.  But not to worry though because I get to go again a few times in July, so I promise there will be a proper Madrid posting or two.  The photos below are just of the very quick walk around the city that I was able to get in while my DayQuil was still working. Like I said, some time within the next month I will have a post a proper group of pics from Madrid but for now, I hope you enjoy these. 

Also, I was able to get a great shot of the Matterhorn on my way back from Milan last week.  Anyone been skiing in the Alps? One day, I will do that :)

Images of Pride

Today was the Pride Parade in NYC. I hope that if you were in town and felt like showing your pride (or your support for someone who is, or who should be, prideful) that you found your way down to the festivities and had a gay old time. I love the mix of people, from every walk of life, who come to celebrate together. It is always inspiring. I took about 500 photos today, focusing mainly on the faces of the people marching and celebrating. To me they are the faces of acceptance and love. I think these faces are beautiful.

The Mermaid Parade

Some photos from The Coney Island Mermaid Parade in Brooklyn this past weekend. A good time seemed to have been had by all. This years Grand Marshalls were Lou Reed and Laurie Anderson. Apparently it started in 1983 as a celebration of the summer season. I can think of little that should be celebrated more! Read more about it here.
