You’ve Come a Long Way, Baby…

Long Way

Went to the Pride Parade this afternoon. It’s been probably ten years since Auckland has had a gay pride parade. Not sure why – money and politics I think… So off I went on a perfect afternoon armed with a camera and a couple of lenses… took about 300 shots – some beautiful, some that made me laugh, some that made me wonder and some that made me look away…

This one’s my favourite… she’s got some stories to tell I bet… what I wouldn’t give to pass a few afternoons with her over a few bottles of wine, letting her life story unfold… right up to getting dressed for the parade today… maybe one day… if I ever find out who she is…

Sweet relief

I took this photo in Sopol Poland several years ago. It was October, far too late in the year for anyone to go wading in the Baltic. And yet, this old woman hobbled through the wind to the water, and stood in the water for several minutes. I have always loved this photo – it’s told me so many stories. (Here is one of them called The Mermaid Returns) I will always wonder what was playing in her mind and her heart as she stood there.
