Amsterdam, We Are Proud - Canal Parade.
forse gli organizzatori del Gay Pride di Amsterdam dovrebbero cominciare a pensare ad un altro periodo per la sfilata annuale lungo il Prinsengracht - non credo di aver preso mai tanta acqua per fare delle foto come ne ho presa oggi... pioggia, nubi basse, poca luce, vento - per fare degli scatti decenti bisognava fare i salti mortali.
eppure, nonostante il tempo remasse contro, i cittadini di Amsterdam hanno assistito in massa, come ogni anni, alla Canal Parade. oltre 60 barche allestite hanno partecipato alla sfilata - colorate, stravaganti, modaiole, impegnate, sfacciate, pacchiane... di tutto di piu'.
nel WS un'immagine di un tratto del Prinsengracht durante la sfilata.

Amsterdam, We Are Proud - Canal Parade (Amsterdam Gay Pride).
I strongly advice the organizers of the Amsterdam Gay Pride to start looking for a different date - it rained so much today that only the citizens of Amsterdam could endure such a foul weather. I got soaking wet trying to take a few pictures and I had a hard time setting my camera, what with the rain, the low clouds, the lack of light and the wind...
notwithstanding the weather, this was one of the most crowded Canal Parade I experienced - until the very end, after more than 60 boats. and as usual, all kinds of Gay/Lesbian/Transgender associations were there, as well as political parties, VIPs, corporate representatives, army, police, public transport... you name it.
in the WS you can see a section of the Prinsengracht during the parade - and the Prinsengracht is not the shortest canal... :)
