    June 1979, San Francisco Gay Parade, Leica M3, 50mm ELmar
    In those days the word Turn(s) had specific sexual connotations.
    Hence the sign NO TURNS has or had meaning.

    Yeah, that's cool. I have a Crown Graphic and that RF caught my eye right away but I can see the image capable of causing a person to take pause for moment.

    The cheap trick is to stencil "GUARANTEED NO DIGITAL" backwards on an old white tee shirt, stand under an "official " sign, take the picture with a Mamiya C330 (the shirt reads right in the waist level finder!), and flip the negative in the enlarger. And yes, the Speed Graphic has the viewfinder on the wrong side, watch is on the wrong wrist, belt buckle reversed. Photograph was made years ago when a famous colleague pestered me to enter a photographic competition he was running. The submissions had to be in JPG format. I sent this instead.

    Tony,
    Your San Francisco photo brought a smile to my face and a tear to my eye. Back during those years my parents vacationed in San Francisco. One year they were there when the Gay Parade was going on. When they returned home they told me a story about the parade. My father was a person that never met a stranger and soon joined in the parade. He and the participants he joined had a blast together. My father bought a joint from one of marchers in the parade which horrified my mother. She thought they would be busted at any second and the minute they got back to their hotel she flushed the joint down the toilet. They have both been gone for over twenty years and seeing your photo made my day. Thanks.
    Regards,
    Pat

    Pat, Thank you, we were surprised by the size of the parade. Certainly living in Toronto we were used to ‘Gay Parades’ that were [then only] allowed on All Hollows Eve [Oct 31st].
    We were in San Francisco waiting to board a freighter to take us across the Pacific – so it was purely by chance we encountered the Gay Parade.
    It was the size, number, and types of participants that amazed – there were obvious gay’s, alongside mothers and children – It was more like the normal North American parade - with Shriners on their mini bikes etc - than a parade for a specific reason.
    Recently we’ve seen ‘Alternative’ parades in New Orleans, but nothing to match the size of that San Francisco parade on the 25th June more than four decades ago

    Regards
    Tony
