  • Flamingos

    On Monday, I was early to a golf tournament in Malaga and that gave me time to ask around about a bunch of plastic pink flamingos I had seen for many months in an empty field north of Malaga. I found and talked to property owner Bill Meyer of the Singing Springs Ranch who said the figures showed up about a year ago. "They just appeared one morning," he said. the news angle was that the area is generally wet with seepage from a mill pond across West Malaga Road from the pasture but with the Columbia River drawdown the mill pond water level is much lower so the pasture has dried up. He let me go out amongst the birds to photograph them. A wide angle lens showed the cracked mud and I waited for cars to go by the highway in the distance to give the photograph a sense of place. The early morning light helped increase the contrast.
