The Doo Dah Video

Because I’m awesome, I shot video and stills at the same time at this weekend’s Doo Dah Parade. My favorite shot is the swing dancers. There was a pickup truck leading them and playing music, so I jumped on it and shot video with my GoPro from the moving truck.

The audio is OC ReMix #2736: Donkey Kong Country ‘Percussion Hijinx’ [DK Island] by Acadia Percussion Ensemble
by David Wise, Eveline Novakovic, and Robin Beanland.  If you like it, you can also find it here: http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR02736

It’s some great music, so be sure to show them some love.

The Gay Games

I was in a bit of a funk yesterday, but I can think of nothing better to snap me out of it than heading up to Cleveland for The Gay Games. It’s exactly what it sounds like, a sort of Olympics for the LGBT culture, and it was amazing. I didn’t get to see any of the actual sports, but I got to go to the after-party/festival event. I probably wandered off to shoot too much though. Everytime I met back up with my wife and our friend, Megan, kept telling me how everyone thought that they were a couple. But, come on, where else can you Golden Girl shirts, a light-up stilt girl, graffiti for a good cause, rainbow EVERYTHING, and some of the nicest people around?
