Pride Parade!

Pride, originally uploaded by Ayala Moriel.

Have a wonderful Pride Parade - all proud Vancouverites.

My apologies for the long absence. The computer crash is at fault. I now have my laptop back. I got a new hard drive, with most of my data yet most of the photos I've ever taken are still absent (some of which I will recover from Flickr). This pretty much discourages me from taking any new ones!

I am going to the Powell Street festival today, with a camera, in hopes that it will inspire me to take shots again regardless of their virtual fickleness. Hopefully I will be back with something fragrant and colourful to share with you.

P.s. This colourfule fire hydrant spots were shot in San Francisco this Thursday - not a business trip, just a fun day trip courtesy of my friend Tina who works for an airline.

Happy Pride Weekend!
