Topic tags/keywords: skill driftwood shaping arts and crafts

I really had to show you guys this. They are amazing.
They start out with drift wood they find on the beach and simply just go from there and make life size horses out of them. They really must love horses as they have got all thier characteristics down pat.

If you want to see more photos just google drift wood horses

Incredible! There is sure talent of many sorts out thar! Being near Louisville, and the Kentucky Derby, They have what they call “Gallopallooaz”. Here is the link if anyone wants to check it out http://gallopalooza.com/ They’re not made of wood, but, after seeing these driftwood horses, these came to mind.

Hey Roger you reminded me about some zebras that were made and put on Lake George (a disapearing lake, with many stories about where the water goes- China is one theory!) it is just outside Canberra. They were pretty cool and a car stopper as they were on the main highway from Sydney to Canberra. However Vandals got to them and so they were removed. But while they were there they certainly got talked about and because they were so life like people thought they were real.

Every time I see a dramatic sky pic, I think of one I didn’t get to take as I was driving. By the time I found a place and stopped, the light had changed and it was gone for ever. Another one when I was driving, no place to stop and no camera. That wasn’t quite as bad without the camera. I read that photographers for National Geographic take 10,000 shots to get one that will get published. Had to come back and see the zebras again :-))
