This photograph looks like a statement regarding how we generate energy and its impact on our environment. Honestly, I do not have any tangible knowledge that supports such statement. This photograph was created because I thought it was visually interesting only. In fact, about three houses up-stream there is a lot of wildlife.
I like to think that the plastic flamingos were put in place by someone who likes how the color pink looks against the lush green of the grass. Or to symbolize that flamingos live near lakes, swamps and seas during tropical weather, far away from Pennsylvania where this photograph was taken.
The irony of this photograph is that what it says to me may be very different to what it says to others.
