Part of the “100 Images of Summer” series.  Sometimes it is just good to take fun photos.

(June 2nd, 2013)

The morning after the 27th annual AIA SandCastle Competition on Galveston’s East Beach. We got there at 6am, hoping that the sand structures survived the night.

We were not disappointed. It was an interested mix of spectacular structures and ruins. A zeitgeist of pop culture.

Relatively few people. Some joggers, some dog walkers, a couple of photographers who had the same idea. City workers who were there to clean the beach of waste and ocean debris.

More importantly, a much more civilized outing than trying to do this in the middle of heat and humidity of the festival afternoon the day before.

And we got our shots before a storm hit 2 hours later.
