I really think I'm addicted to faces.

From today's Pride Parade, a vision of loveliness.

One of the Fat Chance Bellydance goddesses, my bellydance idol troupe for years now.

I could take pictures like this all day and be happy happy happy.

I think I took almost 900 photos today. Even if none of the rest turn out like this, I'm still thrilled with this image.

Catch you later... I've got a bunch of photos to edit.

The goddess becomes the legend, hail to the blurred boundaries of the transgendered soul!!! OK I'm being very theatrical, but i just love the photos, they exude transformation and beauty. I just came from the Pride Dallas March. It was 107 degrees. But I made it carrying a big flag down Cedar Springs Ave. This photo is superb, I can see it framed and gracing the wall of an elegant yet dangerous home. I have been yelling "equal rights for all" all through the afternoon and feel both elated and exhausted.

I just love your creativity, your eye for imaginative things! You could probably turn an ordinary shot into something special!

I think every photographer worth of this name is addicted to faces...

Can't wait to see the rest of the pictures, these are truly amazing (my favorite is the one on top).

We really enjoy your blog, even though we never leave comments -it's hard to add anything to your wonderful images...

Stunning! Is there any better parade than the Gay Pride Parade? I don't think so!

Jules this is museum quality stuff. You so need to be published. The Renegades are sorry we could not do the parade this year. We normally do it whenever we are available. It is the one day we go by the name of The Renegays the official Drum and Bugle Corps of San Francisco! :-)

I really love looking at your pictures. I can't explain the pull they have, it feels like you care about your subjects, but it seems silly to imagine that that could actually come across in a photo!

Whatever your magic is...keep it up!

Oh. Oh my. Such beauty.

That is a really really good shot. Congrats. Don't you just love to sit all day and play with images, seeing how with one different effect it almost becomes a completely different image?
