This is the second of five shots that I'll be putting up from Blackpool's Gay Pride 2006 festival that I went to yesterday; probably the least 'dramatic' of the five, and the one furthest away from summarising the nature of the event. Nonetheless, I like how it turned out.

On a related matter: one of the things I like about events such as this, particularly ones that explicitly celebrate a culture, is that people like to be photographed. When I shoot street portraits I often find that people can be suspicious – "why do you want to take my photograph?" – but at public events, especially those of a more carnivalesque nature, people are much more willing to take part.

Update: if I'd been just a bit more efficient I would have been able to tell you that this is a shot of Vicky and Vicky (yes, they're both called Vicky) rather than having to wait until Vicky left a comment identifying herself :-)
