  1. truddle, girlanddog, and Ron: Thank you. ๐Ÿ™‚

    foxchild: I enjoy exploring colors. They’re fun. And lots more work than I thought they’d be when I started the series.

  2. I really enjoyed this, and it reminded me that I still need to go back and read the other colour posts. I read some, but not all, wanting to read them when I had time to enjoy them and really take them in (ie when the kids are in bed).
    Monty’s favourite colour for a long time was pink. Now it is purple. I will show him this – he will like the pictures. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. This was such a phenomenal series of pictures, I think it edged out my former favorite, the brown series.

    That little baby with the sunglasses… that was just too cool. She gives the Fonz a run for his money.

    Love your shoes. The opening shot had a crazy vividness to it, and the sunrise pictures took me there. The water actually looks pink! At least, pink tinged.

  4. I really like the accompanying text too. Great finds about pink. That was interesting that Ladies Home Journal suggested the opposite for boys and girls back in the olden days.

  5. Personally I have never been fond of pink, although I do like the pinkish rose-mauve shade (sorta like your tea-pot.) But I do like some of the pinks which occur in nature, such as the pink dogwoods…and your pink water lily is gorgeous.

    As for those pink flamingos, I used to live in Madison, WI and there is a legend about Madison being on the migratory route of the plastic pink flamingos. As I understand it, back in the 70’s there was this wild and crazy guy in Madison who was associated with the University of Wisconsin (I think he was president of the Student Association or something like that) and he went out and bought 1008 of these things and stuck them up in front of one of the main old buildings that housed the Dean’s office. Even today, you can find places in Madison that still have one of these flamingos on display. Read all about it here:

  6. Thanks, amuirin. I’ve always thought that little baby is just too cool. ๐Ÿ™‚ You should see her bathing suited glamor shot (which I almost used instead of this one).

    Those are my almost-favorite shoes.

    Ocean: lol! Maybe that explains the guy from Whaddya Know? giving out pink flamingos. Or he used to. I don’t know if that’s still the case or not.

  8. Robin, This is a wonderful post. I love the variety of pinks. I could probably go through my entire photo collection and find maybe 3 pink flowers. And even though I live in Madison (referring to the comments above) I’ve never once taken a photo of a plastic pink flamingo. And, yes, they are still around.

    Now I have to check out some other colors.

  9. I’m glad you enjoyed it, Barbara. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Pink flamingos fascinate me. I might have to get one (of the plastic variety) to put near the pond.
