Kirkos the magnificent.....

I was sent out on assignment on Friday to take pictures of a local artist named Kirkos. He does these really cool designs on the sand, let me tell you that these things are HUGE. They look so cool when they are done, its so funny watching people go by and just stare trying to figure it out and see what it is. If you go up to the top of the cliffs then you can get an aerial view of the design and get to see the whole thing. Kirk was a lot of fun to talk to and it was really interesting hearing about all the work that goes into it, this particular design he said takes about 3 hours, there are others that he has done that can take 5 or more.....crazy. It was cool watching him work and seeing all of these nifty tools that has to sculpt the sand. I stuck around until he was done and stayed to get some sunset stuff. It was the end of a good day, Kirk you are amazing i can see why you have so many fans. Heres some pics. Enjoy!
