Flamenco, the popular Spanish dance with its very energetic and graceful moves is also the Spanish word for Flamingo; And, that is the name of my latest image – Flamenco.
Although I don’t focus on the energy of the flamingoes in this shot, I do focus on capturing their gracefulness especially with the one in the foreground with its neck curved back on itself and its beak partially hidden from view. The flamingoes in the background take up postures which also draw attention to the idea of gracefulness while their reflections shimmer below them. If you think I have gone overboard in my description of the images, you are probably right. I enjoyed taking the photo and I think it is one of my favourites for the summer. I plan to make it visible on the gallery and I plan to have it available for purchase if anyone is interested but for now I am just showing it off on the blog.
In closing, I have always been intrigued by the dance and I think that intrigue has been captured in the photo as I aimed to emphasize the grace, beauty and aesthetic appeal of Flamenco. Enjoy!
