Cross dressing

Pink streak, originally uploaded by CharlesFred.

It rained all day Sunday, well at lest until about 5 o'clock, so just time to cycle off with my camera to find any nice shots of day two of the Hartjefestival on Zeedijk. Sure enough, we could find men dressed as women and women dressed as men, as predicted by the local paper.

The lght was not so good and the Zeedijk was now teeming with people so not the best opportunity for taking pictures. However, it seems that if you are going to go to the trouble of dressing up as a woman, you are not going to pass over the opportunity of being photographed. So, managed to get some posed shots. While itw as great to see the lengths to which some people went in dressing up, it was also great to see a number of chaps not doing a lot more than putting on a dress and a wig and just being their normal manly selves.

Next weekend, we have the opening of the cultural season in Amsterdam, which is marked by the Uitmarkt and various open-air concerts and the like. Hopefully the weather will have settled a bit by then, as we move nearer to the glorious month of September.
