Color & Form

FlamingosIn the visit to the zoo mentioned in the previous post, I noticed this display of flamingos. Unfortunately, the scene was rather sad, with the stagnant water, litter, pipes and other facilities within the view. I remembered the zoom-during-exposure technique (also mentioned previously), and closed the aperture down to f/22 for a shutter speed of one second. It was already a rather dull, cloudy day. With the resulting blur from the motion of the hand-held zoom, I was able to hide or camouflage the unsightly elements of the scene while keeping the recognizable form and color of the flamingos.
