the art of shaping sand

When I collected the links for the new sweet serendipity post for tomorrow, I noticed, that I never published these photos of unbelievable sand art. We had the chance to see these sand statues in Warnemünde (near Rostock) on our last vacation. I still can’t believe, how beautiful and delicate the figures are. Simply magical.

round & round: haven of Rostock

Round & round is a little photo project I’m doing once in a while. When I find an interesting place, I choose a fixed point to stand and try to find as many interesting motives around me as possible. The only moves I make are up and down and a turn of 360°. I don’t take one step in any direction. That’s the challenge. But everytime I find little details, that I would have otherwise missed. It pushes me to look closely at all that is around me. It doesn’t take long. Five to ten minutes are enough for this little exercise, but you lern so much. This one here is a round & round shoot I took at the haven of Rostock near to the historic center, where I took the photo walk architecture.

We’re back from a beautiful and relaxing vacation at the Baltic Sea. We stayed three days simply at the coast, then two nights in Rostock and four in Stralsund. Two of the most amazing architectural cities, I’ve ever seen. When I walked the streets of Rostock for the first time, I instantly fell in love with the hanseatic architecture. Since the fall of the wall 25 years ago, so much has changed in these cities. A lot of money was paid, so the buildings could be renovated. Almost every house is painted now in bright colors and looks like having build just two years ago, although most of them are over 60 years old. I was especially amazed by the little details and ornaments. Just look at the faces and little flowers or the sun with clouds door handle.
