Saturday Night, midnight.

 Of course the Flamingos are back to visit Lawrence for Valentine’s Day 2021. They arrived after dark last night, February 13 and should be hanging out at Lawrence Circle until well after sunset.  As you can see, Lawrence Circle has no fence this year, with a replacement for the damaged fence coming in the Spring.

I’m starting my coverage of the event with the nighttime image above, and will add many more when daylight brightens the scene, especially if we can see the sun or a little blue sky. Please stop by again for more.

Valentine’s Day, 4 PM

IMG_2930-Arthursj  The skies never brightened, but I hope this 2021 flock of flamingo photos will brighten your day anyway. I’m posting first a Slideshow with over 30 images [to see a larger version of a photo, pause the Slideshow at the image, right-click, and choose Show Image in New Tab.] Then, a selection of my favorites from the Slideshow.

Flamingos4thCover In the meantime, if you are wondering about the Legend of the Stockade Valentine Flamingos, click the following link for a full look (no purchase necessary) at the 4th edition of my very first photo-book: “Valentine Flamingos in the Schenectady Stockade: whimsy and mystery at Lawrence Circle” (2020). The book has been expanded to 24 pages and follows a dozen years of the pink flamingo Valentine tradition at Lawrence Circle in the Stockade, with 60 photos. [If you would like a copy, contact me and I will get one for you at my cost, rather than the full Shutterfly price.]
