My Capital Pride 2006 'Love Power' Pride 2007 DVD Edition

In celebration of the 2007 Gay Pride Season I hope to create several photo montage / musical DVDs, over the next few months, that will feature images that I've taken, over the years, of gay prides, equality demonstrations and circuit events.

Some of the projects may date back to 1992.

In launching my 2007 Gay Pride Celebration Project which is actually part on my ongoing "Out In The Life" series I spent the last few days reediting my 2006 National Come Out Day ' Love Power' Capital Pride 2006 photo monage into the DVD format.

As of Friday evening, copies were left at The Fireplace, Omega, JR's Bar & Grill, Cobalt / 30 Degrees and Green Lantern.

"WINDOWS OF THE WORLD" May 2007 video demo

I have photographed windows for many years, dating back to the fall of 1972. Here is my first WINDOWS OF THE WORLD demo video which, in sync with Dionne Warwick's version of "The Windows of the World" from her Definitive Collection cd, features images that I have taken, over the years, in New York City, South Boston VA, Miami Beach FL and Washington DC.

The self-portrait to the left was taken in July 1992 at Lothar's apartment, in Chelsea, on West 20th Street in NYC. Here is the original photo.

Here is the WINDOWS OF THE WORLD May 2007 demo video at Google and my Windows of the World 2007 photo collection at flickr.
