A Masterpiece in Motion!

A Masterpiece in Motion

"Flamingoes command the observation of the artful eye, a true masterpiece in motion, their color scream for the attention of an idol brush or lens to capture their magnificence."
~Rosemary Aubut~
I can only imagine the frenzy of a true maestro trying to mix the colors, on his sophisticated pallet to capture the magnificence of the flamingo and do it justice. Shade upon shade, strokes long and short, a masterful manipulation of paint by his skilled and artful hands. 
Many have tried and many have succeeded but to watch them in motion, is a canvas painted in the museum of the mind.
This photo was taken at the San Diego Zoo, in San Diego, California. Reviewing my photos of that day I came upon this powerful shot. The thing I love most about photography is that it brings me back to that museum of the minds eye, anytime I wish!

Pin It!
