Ottawa Pride Parade Aug 25

Last year was a blast! and I am going again this year.

The pride parade is an awesome event that is held in Ottawa every year and it is the most colorful parade you'll ever witness.

See pictures from last year  http://www.meetup.com/The-Ottawa-Photography-Meetup-Group/photos/10413182/

The parade starts at 1pm, so we will meet 15 minutes before the parade outside Second Cup on bank street to get ready.

Thanks everyone

      Like I said ... no one died, no one went to hospital or jail ... we all loaded our cads with tonns of great shots ... and the beer afterwards was cold ... not a bad day at all!

    This was my fist pride parade in Ottawa. I have been told by multiple folks that this was the best parade ever ... I can only say for sure it was colourful and everyone participating and spectating looked like they were having a great time. I did get some amazing shots and, as always, met up with a great bunch of meetup people.

    This won't be my first Pride parade, but it will be my first Photography Meetup. A lot of people will be using this Second Cup as a meeting point, so I will be looking for the DSLRs around the collars!

    • Christophe

      I should be there too.. But don't know yet if I'll be wearing a DSLR around my neck or something lighter :-)

    • Michael L.

      See you there!

    Thinking to take just a simple 1.8 prime for it. Should be just right. Eh?

    August 24, 2013

    • Michael L.

      Primes are perfect for portraits. Set it to 1.8 and you will get a very pleasant background
