Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

So today I went for my first photostroll with the Seattle Flickrites, and I was lucky enough to join the group to photograph the Fremont Solstice Parade.

This is the parade’s 20th year. It is a community art parade that celebrates free speech, creativity and the beauty of diversity.

And so they danced.

And they sang.

And they held hands and spread the love.

And they even rode on bikes with their bare tushies.

But the star of the day, Mr Sun, refused to show.

No matter. The parade still went on and it turned out to be great weather for one.

More pictures at my Flickr. If bare torsos and tushies offend your sensibilities, don’t click that.

Happy Solstice everyone!
