Sand and Sneakers - Print-a-Day-18

This is number 18 in the series "Print-a-Day for 30 Days."

The annual Sand in the City competition was just a few weeks ago.  Teams of volunteers from local businesses compete to build the best sand sculpture in an effort to raise funds for a local charity.

A couple of tons of sand are dumped into a big pile to give the kids a place to play.  The sand pile is surrounded by little pairs of shoes.

This print was selected for the print project because of the detail in the shadows and the blue shoe laces.  The printer can produce a wider range of blues than can be seen on the screen.  I was curious to see how the laces would reproduce on paper.
