Great photos. I went to a similar exhibition in North Germany, it was really amazing to see what can be done with sand. Ice sculptures are also great but hard to photograph! Happy WW.

Hi, Thanks for your visit! A lot of people think Kelly is my grand daughter but she is my daughter!!

I had Kelly when I was 40! She will be 29 next month! I will 70 next August.

She has been such a blessing to me!! I am a little crippled up and she helps me a lot!! Grams

the teach said...

Oh Grams, you're lucky to have her. I assumed she was your granddaughter because you call yourself "grams," not because you look older...

the teach said...

Thanks Bee, for stopping by!
Happy WW!

Amazing Gracie said...

These amaze me... The thought that they are fleeting and not set in stone makes them somewhat ethereal...
