I was asked by S to take pictures of her belly dance troupe, and so of course I said yes! I thought I would get to parade route early and get myself a spot, somewhere in the sun and just sit there waiting for them to shimmy down the street in front of me.
What I got was the chance to ride my bike with them and take photos while they shimmied down the street! It was the first parade Iâ€™ve been a part of and it happened to be the Seattle Gay Pride Parade. Itâ€™s funny, the day started out with my nursing a slight headache and not feeling 100%, but I manned up and headed to downtown. Parked the car and got on the bike and rode to the start of the parade. It amazes me what some people called â€œcostumesâ€ but then itâ€™s supposed to be a good time and it seemed to me that everyone was having a blast!
The ladies from the troupe had scarves that worked especially well in the wind and they all looked great in the sun! Well done ladies and I look forward to the next time youâ€™re performing!
