Random Beach Art

I think a lot of art-oriented people live around here. While walking at the beach where we sighted the infamous driftwoodman, we saw some new installations the other day.

This one was rectilinear.

This one incorporated several holes. The dogs were convinced there were gophers down in them and I had to shoo them away to get this shot.


This yin/yang symbol was actually pretty well done. The gray stones have eroded from the silicious shale that outcrops at the beach. The black stones are actually gray ones that have been coated with asphaltum. For all of our natural beauty here in Santa Barbara, we live in the middle of an oil field. Asphaltum seeps out naturally around here and you always have to check your feet for tar when you come home from the beach.
