Taking Pride

The last two years a tradition has begun that I take my vacation end of July-ish, beginning of August and spend it in Stockholm. This is partly because I like Stockholm around that time, but it also means I can shoot the Stockholm Pride parade.

I love shooting the parade! All the colors, the vibrance, the noise and the massive amounts of wonderful people! It’s an explosion of colors and celebration and I love documenting it through my lens. Almost exclusively I shoot this even with my 70-210 zoom and I’ve taken to calling it my Pride-lens – I’ve owned it a bit more than a year and so far I guess maybe 80% of the time it’s been used has been to shoot twain Pride-parades.

Here’s a selection of photos from the parade of 2014:
