Favourites 2004

I have been photographing the Sydney Gay and Lesbian parade for many years now and my aim is for as many people as possible to share the event, especially those who take part in the spectacle each year. A big thank you to Larry at pinkboard and Elizabeth's Newtown gallery for their support over the years.

I have literally thousands of photos, far too many to upload to a blog like this.
So this blog will be a selection of my favourites from each year. To see ALL THE PHOTOS, good bad or ugly, please go to my flickr account, which is a work in progress as there are so many to be up-loaded! 
Images are copyright except for personal use by anyone in a photo.



Ah yes the year of the RAIN!!!!!!!!!!
The skies opened and it poured down for the entire parade. Costumes melted, props fell apart, generators blew up.
And an awful year to take photos. In the preparation area most people were wearing plastic ponchos over their costumes and to photograph the parade I had to kneel in the water and try to balance an umbrella and photograph at the same time. please excuse the blurring!
However the participants in the parade put on a brave face and most of them seemed to have a ball!
