Thinking Pink: San Diego Zoo
Now I ask you why? Why? WHY? Are there always flamingos at the entrance to a zoo….?
Seriously, have you noticed that?
Maybe cuz they are a sunny little burst of cheerfulness? Or because you can get so close?
Don’t know. But my friend Wendy and I enjoyed a stop there during our trip to the World Famous San Diego Zoo!
How can you possibly resist snapping some photos? (Especially if you are me and have a Photo Blog that you have to feed DAILY?)
I noticed a sun spot on this next little guy (gal?) so I dialed down the exposure and took advantage of that spotlight effect.
You know though, I think my favorite part of that shot is the pink glow in the water. Kookie but true!
I’m calling this next one “The Last Nap of the Headless Flamingo.”
And just in case that got you in the mood to read a little bit of The Last Ride of the Headless Horseman:
Here’s an excerpt from The Legend of Sleepy Hallow:
“Just then he heard the black steed panting and blowing close behind him; he even fancied that he felt his hot breath. Ichabod cast a look behind to see if his pursuer should vanish, according to rule, in a flash of fire and brimstone. Just then he saw the goblin rising in his stirrups, and in the very act of hurling his head at him. Ichabod endeavored to dodge the horrible missile, but too late. It encountered his cranium with a tremendous crash,–he was tumbled headlong into the dust, and Gunpowder, the black steed, and the goblin rider, passed by like a whirlwind.”
