Work of Art

Simpsons in the sand, Weston-Super-Mare | www.myfoododyssey.com

I love spontaneous art. I love that people go to such trouble to make beautiful things, even when that beauty will be short-lived. This frequently occurs with fine dining, where chefs spend considerable time making food look beautiful on a plate, only to have it swiftly devoured. I took this photo in Weston-Super-Mare in England on our tour last summer. I love the fact that someone, possibly another tourist inspired by the large, blank canvas, has gone to such great lengths to create a beautiful picture in the sand, knowing that the tide will come in within a few hours and wash it all away. A work of art, indeed.

    • Ha! I never thought of it that way, Simone! Perhaps the was no sand left for Krusty at the time?

      • Hmmmm… knowing Krusty, I think it may be more sinister than that… he’d have sued for copyright laws!
