Miss So Pretty In Pink

Photograph; Prettyneons

The Zoo such a great place to go when in need of what I like to call 'climate escapism' as when at a zoo with such wonderful and tropical creatures you can fool yourself into thinking your at some other location in the world (well at least until the zoo people kick you out) when in fact your really not anywhere unknown and new at all. Never mind that though...

Would you just look at this beautiful flamingo, I took so many different photos of this lovely lady! Almost twenty to be mathematically exact, in an attempt to highlight all the beautiful tones and shades of pink not too dissimilar to candy floss. That appeared to entwine and swirl through the many and many layers of long floaty feathers, and not forget to mention the neon pink knobbly knees. The dark grey miserable wet background is a strong contrast against the bright pinks of this character, flamingos reflection glistening off the puddles...I'm feeling a new scrap book entry coming on. Either in the from of ink and chalk, not entirely sure of yet but which ever media I chose it has to really capture all thats admiring and glorious; Must do this miss flamingo justice.
