It's the final day of Pride Month. Sue and I got to Linda's new sign, draped ourselves in the Pride flag and took some photos.
The sign's message is: "It isn't what we say or think that defines us, but what we do." Behind us is a photo of one of the well-known couples in town, but we placed ourselves in front of their picture for our purposes.
We had chosen a day and time when the weather was supposed to be overcast because I know from experience that, otherwise, photos here become extremely contrasty. Unfortunately, the forecast was wrong, but we continued with the shoot regardless. In edit, I did my best to reduce the contrast, so you can imagine how the the original ↑ may have looked. Shooting in these conditions drives me crazy.
However, we did go on to take some Sue photos. Her photo challenge was long exposure, blur. She waved the Pride flag while the shutter was open for 2.5 seconds.
Then, she slowly twirled her colourful umbrella for 2 seconds.
I am still disappointed with the lighting, but I do like the concept. Maybe I can use the idea at another time and place.
