A Band of Brothers

 

The theme of this year's sand sculptures in Garderen, NL, is "75 Years of Liberation" from WWII.

This year they added non-sand props to the life-size sculptures.

Such a beautiful sculpture that is so life-like! Great capture with dramatic light. They had a story today on President Eisenhower's memorial that will be unveiled. It had a great background on how he led through WWII and how the memorial design relates to Normandy.
Ginnie Hart: What amazes me about the World Wars, Steven, is how many big-time movies have been made about their individual stories. Lest we forget!
That's just amazing, Ginnie! Nicely captured.
Ginnie Hart: This year's exhibition really was amazing, Elizabeth. Thank you.
Incredible statues Ginnie, a fine tribute. You captured them well.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.
well shot with this light, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Ayush.
These atrocious wars have obviously not served as a lesson, since wars are still going on all over the world, and a little bit of nothing could provoke one again. I am astonished at the lack of wisdom of men. But these soldiers are beautiful in the light and touching as well because they are a reminder of the suffering of many families for having lost a loved one. Have a good week Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Every time Astrid and I visit any exhibition about war, Marie, at some point I always say "I HATE WAR." This exhibition was no exception, so I totally agree with your comment. With memorials and exhibitions like this all over the world, you'd think history would have taught us something???

It's hard to believe this is sand Ginnie, it's all so clever!
Ginnie Hart: I totally agree, Chris. You can see why we go back every year!

I am really impressed with this place where they have the sand-sculptures, Ginnie. I know it is a "whole army" of people making this possible every year. They do a great job with the light and the sound effects. Your picture shows the fine details in these men and it is amazing it is sand.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Astrid. Exactly as you have written. No wonder we're so eager to go back every year!

Ginnie Hart: Merci, JP.
A fine picture Ginnie. This must have been quite an experience to visit
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Bill, and indeed. You can see why we're excited to go every year!

I am always amazed at how skilful some people are at making these sculptures Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: I am, too, Chad, which is why we always make sure we return every year!

Amazing that these are made from sand. I never got beyond sandcastles!
Ginnie Hart: I know, Alan. They've made a successful business attraction out of it!

Nicely shot! Moody colors and what a great TV series too!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Ryan. My son got me onto the TV series, which was well worth seeing!
I especially like the light in this touching image. Friendship
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Ruthie. They did a good job making the mood for these sculptures.

The participants in sand sculptures usually work wonders. This is so excellent. Have they managed the lighting, or is it your doing?
Ginnie Hart: The exhibits indoors, Louis, are well-managed by their own lighting, with a bit of tweaking of my own. Thank you.
Hele mooie en duidelijke zandsculpture
Ginnie Hart: Well worth seeing, Marjolein, if you've never been?!
I would never have thought this is sand sculpture, how clever.
Ginnie Hart: I know, Brian. They do a great job every year.
this is a great sand sculpture for the memorial Ginnie... that was the year that we were born... but i will only be 75 years old in November...

i can't remember seeing a sand sculpture before....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Peter. It was perfect timing for us!
I have read my grandfather's WW1 war record and am amazed at what he went through. The number of times he was wounded and returned to fight. I don't know how they could continue to fight. He suffered until the day he died in the 1950s.
Ginnie Hart: I can't tell you how many times I have said to Astrid Ï hate war!" Those who have endured it, like your dad, deserve unmeasured honor!
It's amazing what can be done with sand!
Ginnie Hart: Truer words were never spoken, Tom!
