Tampa Air Port Flamingo

 


I saw this above photo of the Tampa Florida Airport new Art Installation in an article HERE.
I should be installed by Spring of 2022. the ceiling is glass, reflecting on the floor and makes it look like the people are wading underwater and the giant flamingo is wading and feeding.



I love Flamingos, and here are a few of my on Flamingo Photos from my Archives.
These flamingos live in Jungle Gardens, Sarasota Florida about 12 miles from my home.

I like the design. It would be amazing to see the artwork when it's installed at the airport. Your real flamingos are pretty birds and I love your photos.

Wow, I love the FLamingo art, I would love to see it. Your flamingo photos are wonderful. I've been hearing people are flocking to see a live flamingo near South Florida somewhere. Take care, enjoy your day!

That airport flamingo is super cool. Mr T has never been on an aeroplane and now he wants to visit Florida. F suspects that is an item that will never get ticked off his bucket list unless he agrees to sail there on a yacht. (Unlikely to happen.)

They are so beautiful in their pink gorgeousness. I also really like when they turn public places we have to use into works of art or do something to make thme more beautiful and/or interesting for people who have to pass through them.

Hello Sandra, Wow! that huge flaming is incredible, and your captures of the real ones are outstanding.

I think the Tampa airport always had pretty/interesting displays ... but this one takes the cake. How cool!
'Wonder if Jungle Gardens isn't the same one I'm remembering from my childhood.

It's been what 40 years? But everytime I think about flamingos I start to hum that old advertising jingle: "Walk this way to 7/11, follow the flamingo, walk this way."
