"Ducks mean a lot in American society. How did ducks become the premiere bird to rubberize and have in the tub with you as you bathe? Why wasn’t I afforded the opportunity to bathe with rubber bald eagles, or rubber flamingos. This picture shows how ducks have become very arrogant. I tried to give the duck bread, and it didn’t want to take it. It made me sad, but I got over it. Seth captured that moment."

"I really like pink. I always thought it was a way cool color. But I was hesitant to tell people because the second people realize you like something specific, that's all they get you from then on.
