Since today’s weather was the perfect spring day to get in some beach time and in honor of throwback Thursday I’m highlighting a photo I took in June of 2010. Back in 2010 a sand sculpting competition was held in my hometown of Long Beach, NY as part of a Go Green festival. During the competition I headed over to the beach to check out the art that was being created and since I work as an editorial designer for my local community newspaper took some photos for the paper. While shooting I started talking to one of the artist and after talking to the editor about how there should be a story on the competition he turned around and said that I should write the story. The mermaid sculpture above was the winner of the competition. Sadly the sand sculpting competition hasn’t returned to the beach.
