Photos taken along the parade route culminating at Gasworks on this marvelous day of bright sun and looming clouds. Be forewarned: this collection of thumbnails contains a smattering of nudity (although nothing terribly explicit).
Seattle’s own carnival, with a sense, somehow, of decorum and civility thrown in. This solstice celebration has more of a flirty Finnish sauna than wicker man buzz.
Walking away after parade’s end, I saw a tourist approach a couple of cops:
“Excuse me, officer,” she said, “but isn’t nudity against the rules?”
“Not today, ma’am,” the older of the two cops replied with a grin.
