“Now is no time to think of what you do not have. Think of what you can do with what there is.”
― Ernest Hemingway
Becky Hale (National Geographic Magazine photographer) contacted me back in March asking if I could build a sandcastle in their studio for a series they do on tools. We decided to build a sandbox on our farm once everybody understood the amount of sand and water involved.
Here are some shots of the process. Figure 1 & 2
The article is more about the tools than the castle so some of the areas around the castle are smoothed out to make space for the writing that will accompany the photo.
We avoided thunderstorms all day. The next morning I finished the sandcastle (Figures 3, 4, 5 & 6) and played with the new tools that I invented. Figure 7
Then it rained. Figure 8
And rained… Figure 9
Now that the story is out I will write a few How & Why articles on the new tools.
Man must shape his tools lest they shape him.
– Arthur Miller
