I ran over to the Sand Sculpture World Championships one afternoon, first, because I have seen them on TV and enjoyed the sculptures so much and second, so I could capture them for my blog. The even took place in a parking lot in a mall which to me was a let down as when I view them on TV they are usually on a beach somewhere and it adds to the whole experience, granted we don’t have many sandy beaches in the area around Seattle and Tacoma. I have roughly, and I mean very roughly, processed these images to bring out the detail in the sculptures and faded out the background of pole lights, large buildings, pallets and parking lot. I was away from my desktop to which my Wacom table is attached and I am a klutz at using a mouse to clone or paint or anything of that order–and you can sorely tell–but please disregard those processing and enjoy the detail of the sand sculptures.
I just couldn’t chuck all these images without sharing them–the sculptures were so amazing in spite of the parking lot surroundings.
Thanks for stopping by!
