It was early morning and the sky was that typical Mediterranean blue when we decided to hit the beach. Normally, we are afternoon beach goers with a full tummy and want nothing more than to sink into the warm afternoon sand and snooze off a traditional Sardinian lunch, but not today. Today we packed our bags earlier than the birds.
Sculpture is the art of intelligence. – Pablo Picasso
Surprised to find my favourite beach littered with makeshift bamboo sculptures/shade-shelters I knew this was my moment to capture the weekly travel theme. I was even more surprised to find the beach completely … empty.
In the summer months, particularly in the afternoon, this beach is packed with tourists and locals alike. It was a great welcome to have this stretch of beach to ourselves, if only for an hour.
It is not hard to understand modern art. If it hangs on a wall it’s a painting, and if you can walk around it it’s a sculpture. – Tom Stoppard
I got a little lucky with this week’s travel theme. This week I didn’t have to go out searching for objects to photograph. These sculptures just came to me.
This is my response to Ailsa’s Travel Theme: Sculpture.

Simple, yet utterly fascinating.
Now these really are cool Jennifer.
Nice to see you back, hope you’re well. 🙂
Yep doing good. Finally got a computer that works so life is easy…hehehe
Very cool sculpture … I love the little beach shade umbrellas in Cuba, this reminds me of them a little, or more like a Canadian teepee.
In the UK, too, we found that beaches are fairly deserted early, and hordes come by afternoon. Here the early mornings are popular for beachgoing.
The kids and I did some structures like that the other day. I didn’t even know we were creating sculpture! 🙂
