Dublin Pride

Posted by
ursulakatariina (Ed, Sweden) on 2 July 2012 in Documentary & Street.

On Saturday there was LGBTQ parade in Dublin.
Don't know how much people there were marching, but they all seemed to have fun and all the people watching seemed to have fun time too.

My photos of the event didn't turn out to be very good (more strangers' elbows than people in parade), but couple of ok shots I could find.

Nice to see you! I hope you enjoy seeing what I saw earlier.
Please, leave a comment so I know you have been here.

I got a colour spotlight, see it here.

Please read this.

That's a parade I think the most heated emotions at the moment. Some are so difficult to understand the differences. See the news stories about various forms of harassment. Maybe sometimes they also get used to this, which today do not really understand.

@Jypyä Pop: It was really calm and friendly atmosphere around the parade. No idiots throwing eggs like in Helsinki and everybody seemed to really have fun watching the marching people.

Be brave, push your way in......you know the saying "if your picture isn't good enough then you aren't close enough"

@Curly: I was as close I could get... If I went any closer, I would have been part of the parade!
I'm so short, I should have ladder with me in places where there are loads of people, then I would be able to see much more than I do standing on the ground. :)

If you are a bit vertically challenged-try this..... 99% of my "Shot from a long way away concert photos" are done by holding the camera above my head. You set a rough zoom, hold it above your head, and look at the back screen(Set live view if your camera needs this). Your camera might also have a mode where the screen is set up to be more visible when looked at from below) If your camera has an "Anti-shake" mode switch it on. After just a few shots you will get very good at seeing what's on the viewfinder and clicking just at the right time. Tell me how you get on!

@CElliottUK: I do that a lot, but eventually my hand gets tired... The camera has turning screen and it helps really much in the situations like this (if I happen to remember it is turning...).
Sometimes I just forget my hands can stretch out up there... :)

A great picture. Helsinki was also Brait parade, procession, and there pestered eggstroke rains! I can not understand people who can not understand the difference. Allow all the flowers bloom, to accept diversity in the world so it is better to live in!

@Oiva: Thank you.
I read about the Helsinki Pride and the egg attack - some people just are stupid.

@Oiva: I noticed :). That happens to all of us from time to time and we all understand! :)

Have a nice day!
