American Practical Joke - Plastic Lawn Flamingos




American Practical Joke - Plastic Lawn Flamingos





This is our neighbor's front yard. There are two pieces of 'Americana' culture in this picture. This is hard to explain, but I will give it a try.

The first, and most obvious, are the many plastic flamingos decorating the yard. A flamingo is a type of coastal bird. It is usually pink and very tall and you can find them in Florida. Many houses in Florida - primarily in retirement communities - have one or two plastic pink flamingos decorating the front lawn.

The second piece of Americana is that this is the woman's 40th birthday (see sign). Since the average life expectancy of a developed country like America is 80+ years, turning 40 is considered the second half of your life. You are done being young and you are starting to get old.

Pink flamingos are a tacky yard decoration for elderly people in Florida. When someone turns 40, it is not uncommon to receive a pink flamingo as a "joke" gift. This poor woman's yard was COVERED in pink flamingos. Lucky her!

Ancient history, a graffiti decor and "hammock-ready" trees distinguish this oasis for the Athenian homeless.




Ancient history, a graffiti decor and "hammock-ready" trees distinguish this oasis for the Athenian homeless.





This colorful "oasis" in the Aerides neighborhood of Athens, Greece provides refuge for a few apparently homeless persons in the autumn of 2007. The little plaza is situated below the Acropolis and overlooks the site of the ancient Roman agora and the famous landmark "Tower of the Winds."

To The Theater ...




To The Theater ...





The streets were paved with large rectangular slabs of limestone, and the buildings were decorated with intricate mosaics, probably to offset the absence of marble decor. The city had a Forum and associated public buildings (the Basilica and Curia), several temples, a 3500-seat theater, a market, 14 public baths, and a public library.

Wedding Centerpiece




Wedding Centerpiece





This is one of 22 centerpieces we made. The day before the wedding I had the bride, groom and Laura putting these together. They were great students.

The bowls were from Old Time Pottery and we used a local flower farm for all the flowers. Buying local and using sustainable resources was very important to the bride & groom. It took about 1 and a half bricks of floral foam for each and the guests at each table were asked to determine amongst themselves who got to take it home. The tea light sticks were made by hand, by me. I bought the tea lights that had the clear plastic container, drilled a hole in each, stuck a bamboo kabob stick into the hole then put super glue to hold it in place. I tried hot glue but it melted once the candle got down and that was not safe.











Bamboo




Bamboo





Still pretty chilly out (relatively speaking - apparently all that skin thickening I did in NYC and DC wore off in a matter of hour...) but I couldn't wait to try out the new zoom lens I got for Christmas (thank you Jeff and Jimmy!!). Took it for a little spin through the apartment this afternoon and now I can't WAIT to use it on a shoot. Good news is, I've got two coming up. One creative shoot with a new model and my new H/MUA pal Paula and one product shoot for a friend of mine who creates handcrafted decor and is putting out a new wedding line.

Can't. Wait.

Seriously - my trigger finger is twitching :)

Orange buttoned panel is the remote control for the Toto washlet. The toilet paper is in a state of disarray thanks to Maya, who has taken to unrolling all the TP in the house. The panel above the switches is the programmable timer for the radiant heat (4 events per day, 5 days a week, 2 per weekend day). The Toto Duoflush toilet has two flush cycles: 0.9 gallons for 'light waste' and 1.6 gallons for the full deal. Just below the toilet paper is the 'guest guide' to operating the Washlet.

Ironic Heritage at Christmas, Prescott, AZ




Ironic Heritage at Christmas, Prescott, AZ





For those who saw the beautiful Christmas tree earlier in my photo stream, I took it after I shot many images of this lamp post that was directly in front of it from my vantage point on the sidewalk. This blew me away when I realized that the historical photographs that adorn the lamp posts in the center of this outdoor mall had such a powerful image juxtaposed with the past and present...











Reflections




Reflections





I noticed this at the top of an outdoor escalator. The reflection appeared on the glass and I took a few shots as cars and people passed by below. This was the best of the bunch. The taxi is in the road, the passers by are on the pavement near the coffee shop.
