More sand...


..and two micro-climates. You might not be familiar w/ the term, i don't know where else it is used except in The SF Bay area. A typical summer's day? In western SF, the fog is socked in, temp = 55 degrees.  A mile or so to the east in the business district and what's called 'soma' = 'south of market', it's sunny, mild and 25 degrees warmer.

'Microclimate'   
Delicately sculpted sand encloses a distant view, fog curling over the hills.

The sax player is busking at Ocean Beach's Cliff house.
 Fog is teasing him, sand encases him, sort of.

Here's a better view of that fog burnin' off. It's magical :-)

And to finish things off, two 'walkin' images.

Smooth wet sand, Ocean Beach, San Francisco




Wet sand on a beach at low tide becomes a canvas.



.... which then becomes a maze? or perhaps a map? 
Much of life is a matter of 'it's all in the eye of the beholder'. 
Is the glass half empty or...?
Is it a map to the way out (or in?)... or a maze to become lost in?
And where does the ladder go?



The artist shows up when conditions are right, which probably isn't often.

This is the cover of my self published book:


That same wet sand is a canvas for very shallow waves that bounce off each other, creating a network of ripples.
