    The boy and his sand castle look like they are straight out of a Norman Rockwell painting! It would be interesting to post a crop of just that section.

    • Yes, it is reminiscent of Rockwell, in fact I have another image called Rockwell Boys that I will think about posting that is closer…thanks Jeff!

  2. Terrific capture Meryl. Your poem says it all…. all that ingenuity and genius architecture washed up in a split second… only to be rebuilt again by another wondrous little soul !!

    • Isn’t it amazing how they instinctively accept it’s just for the present? A concept we can all learn from day by day….:)

  3. It’s a beautiful composition with beautiful light. There is such a serenity about it, such calmness that it brings be right back to my own childhood. Those lonely moments when I was completely within myself and my task of building something like in sand. The poem is perfect with the picture.

    • Thank you, Otto…I’m happy that it resonated with you…perhaps we are always trying to recapture that serenity, that peace within when we create as adults…

    While he is busy with his sculpting, it looks like some kind of abstract crocodile is sneaking over his way.

    • Yes! I hadn’t noticed that…there’s always something new to see!
