Sand sculptures

August 17, 2005

So myself and dippy mum and step dad went to see the Sand Sculptures exhibition near Brighton Marina on Saturday. Just got the pictures off my camera so I thought that I would post a few!

I can’t remember who this was meant to be but it was one of my favourites.

This one is the temple of Abu Simbel. It was built in honour of Ramses II – there were 4 sculptures of his image on it.

There was some amazing graffiti on the back wall. I love this shot.

Again I am not too sure what this was – something about the underworld and souls and stuff. I love the skulls.

This was a crocodile on the Nile – eating fishermen!

The weather wasn’t that great – bit windy but we had alovely time and it really was very good. The photo’s don’t really do it justice. The problem with the pics were the backgrounds – concrete walls and fencing covered in tarpaulins don’t really make for a great photo!

    I have always tried to make some sort of sand castle every time I have been at the beach. Of course my castle always consited of one bucket of packed sand turned upsidedown. And that never even turns out right. I think the people who do these things are truly great.

    Like I said the pictures really do not do this justice! The detail was just amazing. I love making sandcastles sometimes they are quite fancy with a moat!
