World Beach: One Year

October 17, 2008

Today is the first anniversary of our World Beach Project. Yeah! Puerto Naos, La Palma The 350th contribution (above) landed in the moderation queue on the day and superbly marks the occasion. Thank you to Hubert Lampeitl, Puerto Naos, La Palma for this sensitive and powerful image inspired by an imprint of his own hand and foot. It encompasses the very essence of the project… the unique individuality of our hand mark upon creativity. The contrast of the white and rich purply coloured stones against the dark black canvas of the volcanic sand graphically and extremely sensitively epitomises both the human sense of touch and our vulnerability upon this planet. It has been very exciting to see what has come in over the last twelve months. Thank you so much for participating. Please continue and pass on the information around the world. And remember: Only Stones!!
