The red-capped boy couldn't wait to get to this sand sculpture (of sorts!), so I grabbed a quick shot of his approach (tilted horizon intentional)! Though an obvious mold was in use, it had some detail that I've not seen before (steps, doorway). Not exactly a sand castle unless the moat is purposefully put in the interior for some reason - ha! Some tide (and human perhaps?) destruction add to its haphazard creation. Nonetheless, it is an attention-getter if only due to it's relative height!

We tend to want to manipulate our environment...shape it into something that suits us. Sometimes it happens more naturally and other times with man-made tools. Sometimes it is long-lasting and other times not; sometimes useful, other times not. It makes me wonder if it is a need for self-satisfaction or simply the need to create or something else. 2nd Ave N & Gulf of Mexico, Naples, FL

  1. I love the tilt - it really works composition-wise. I think (though not in this case) that people want to leave their mark - to know that something is left of them when they are gone - a cathedral, a house, a sculpture...
