Second Pride journal in a row, but this one is maybe a little different from Vodka95's.

Many of you know I'm currently down in London for a few months on the biggest job (so far) of my freelance career. Here's my expert 'directing finger' in action, plus my lovely 70-200mm 2.8. Very, very pretty lens

So one of the biggest advantages of being in London right now is that I managed to get to Pride; a huge festival of love and acceptance. It was one the best days of my life, honestly. Tens of thousands of people partying solidly for ~12 hours - smiling and loving life the entire time. It was a beacon of sense amongst recent headlines.

But was it your biggest proud?

I've never been to a pride festival. I like the idea of the LGBT-event part, but not so much the heaps-of-people part. Maybe I'll get over the latter someday ><

I'm not big on crowds, but I'd be lying if I said it didn't look like a good time. :P

^ What they said. Crowds make me nervous and wear me down, but it looks like all involved were having fun.

Also what was that Lambda doing on that bus? Looks suspiciously familiar...

And I just had a major brain hiccup while typing this post because I got not regular deja vu, but *double* deja vu, to the point where I felt compelled to check your prior journals to make sure I hadn't actually seem something similar in one of them... :\

Granted, that one in particular does look very Half-Life-y.

Ah okay, that explains it.

I'm going to just believe that Black Mesa is on that bus route.

Well, Black Mesa is an equal opportunity employer after all...
