Last Friday and Saturday I went to enjoy the final days of Amsterdam Gay Pride, including the Canal Parade. I was carrying a minimalist set up: My beloved M Type 240 + 'cron 35 asph + Thumbs Up EP-10S + spare battery. Back home I made a Blog posting with some text and a couple of pictures, primarily to update my friends and family on the event, but of course you're welcome to have look, too: Gay Pride Amsterdam 2013 – a personal account | Norbert Steinkamp. Most of the evening and night shots in my report were taken at ISO 3200. In some situations it was so dark I wouldn't even think of focusing on something. The camera's been a delight to use. I was operating it in classical RF mode, which implied hip shooting and focusing guesswork. I may bring the EVF next time, however, while being a great tool for the exact work, it often interrupts fast and intuitive picture taking.
It was the annual Gay pride event in my home town of Southampton, and there was the usual plethora of street vendors including the balloon sellers.

This is a very colourful event and it would have been easy to be overwhelmed by the colour, but I made the decision to shoot it b&w: Leica M240 + 50mm Summicron-M f2 Gerry
