San Francisco Pride Celebration & Parade This Weekend

25Jun09

To celebrate the coming of the famous Pride Festival this weekend on June 27-28, WhatImSeeing.com, one of the best San Francisco photography blogs out there, captured this beautiful image.

When I first saw the image, I had an oddly familiar sense that I’ve seen a similar photo that struck me in the same way. Luckily one of the commenters on the Flickr page pointed out that he is reminded of this photograph from American photographer Robert Frank, whose exhibit is currently on display at the SF MOMA. I highly recommend checking out the exhibit if you get the chance, it’s very moving.

My, how the times have changed. So is anyone checking out the Pride festivities this weekend? See you there!
