Worcester Pride

On Saturday, I loaded up the F3 with Portra 160, fully expecting to do the usual downtown photowalk. As I have become better at shooting Portra film as of late, it would be nice to break out of the usual TriX/TMax/Ilford black and white habits.

So, I came across a Worcester Pride parade/rally. The wide shots here were taken with the Nikkor 35mm f/2.8 AiS, and the telephoto photos with the 135mm f/2.8 Ai.

Parade moves down Main Street.

Skintones AND bright colors. To think there used to be 2 varieties of Portra- VC and NC. This one does it all.
