A flamingo photography experience exploring connections to the color pink.
Fantastic photos and very interesting and informative write up!
Really wonderful, very absorbing to read.
Amazing photographs and incredible information, Lara! Like you, I'm a tomboy when it comes to interests and ideas, but recently I've been embracing my feminine side with growing my hair, wearing more light-colored dresses, being more gentle and nurturing with my loved ones. And I feel powerful embracing this side.
"Pink, in all its brilliance and magnetism, is a force in nature. I’m regretful I didn’t see that sooner." Yes, but now we see it differently, and so off to zoo tomorrow to look at these creatures in a new way.
I remember the Nature Conservancy producing a PBS show called Nature. One episode was dedicated to flamingos. I particularly recall those that migrated through the Riff Valley in east Africa. They would feed in the shallow, alkaline lakes in the valley, which contributed much to their very dark, pink plumage. Their coordinated dance/march was an amazing sight. Thanks for this very nice post that brought forth this memory.
Yet, I can not picture you as having a yard full of pink, plastic flamingos.
Lovely! Thank you Lara!
Wonderful piece and terrific photos. Love that color! I know Substack is for writers but I love photos and I wish more writers employed a liberal use of photographs like you...
