We arrived in Rome just in time for the EuroPride 2011 parade, the biggest Gay and Lesbian Pride Parade in all of Europe. We didn’t know there was a parade until we heard the loud house music outside our hotel. It was like the UP Lantern Parade on steroids.
Fabulous, yes, you are!
Allan Caidic shorts:
Sorry, back focused… I couldn’t concentrate. 😛
What’s a parade without Ancient Egyptians with glitters?
Birds of the same feathers…
I kinda felt sorry for the guy in costume on the right. I mean, how can you compete with…
…The Gladiator?! (If you watch the Game of Thrones, that’s The Mountain That Rides in a golden jockstrap fit for a Ser.)
The guy passed out. The kind monk brought him some water and made sure he was ok.
I like how the Italians roll. Ride your bike to your favorite restaurant, have a drink on the street while chatting with your friends.
Arch of Titus. (For those who are wondering about the flares, I have a UV filter attached to my camera for protection, I remove it sometimes if I don’t like the flare/glare or if I have trouble with the AF. I think I removed it for this shot.)
Capping this post with my favorite photo during the Pride Parade. Sunset + Ancient Roman arch + deserted cobblestone street + a kiss = magic.
