" ~perfect! wahhhh...gorgeousss*... "

...Artist~ photographer and animator Cassandra C.Jones worked on a series of composed of found snapshot photographs of real pink flamingos. Definitely so different from the retro plastic counter-part...the lawn ornament! This artist has found that one of the most common snapshots taken of a wading flamingo to be the profile of the bird's long, soft, curved neck and down-bent bill. This particular collection of photographs led her to wonder, if it was possible that an item of now historical kitsch might influence the picture taking of the real thing? After all, most of us are perhaps much more familiar with the nature of the stylized, florescent (ala Las Vegas) or even the plastic version, than the actual bird itself...~Lovely-Colorful Creature!
