Rome, Italy Street Photography with the X100
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.

Lovely photos 🙂 I’m a longtime follower of M + K. I think we were in Rome on the same day! We saw the gay pride people walking from the Colosseo just as the event ended.

I just fell off my seat looking at these beautiful pics – especially the last one. Reminds me so much of the days I was in love. 😀

Oooh gay wedding na next! Ganda piktyurs. Parang Babaylan pang nagkaroon ng sailing parade. Wala nga lang sila muscled men.

Karl, winner ka sa Game of Thrones reference! Obsession namin ngayon yun! Great shots! Paul and I were discussing if there was a baby in the last shot?

Yup Pon, yung mga dinudumog na Babaylan sa lantern parade parang regular lang dun sa Europride and sobra haba ng parada, ikaw magsasawa.
Aileen, I see what you mean, it’s just an illusion I think because of their scarves.
