When aspiring photographers ask me how to pursue travel photography I always tell them to start in their own back yard. No matter where you live there is always travel related subject matter. It could be a scenic view, quirky attraction or festival. This summer I am taking my own advice.
Pictured here are a group of folks who every year take part in the Gay Pride March held every June. This year they dressed in dragon-themed costumes for the Chinese Year of the Dragon. This photograph was taken after hours of preparation in a nearby apartment in Chelsea (which I also photographed) on the way to the march.
What do you like to photograph in your own back yard?
