I tried to make a sandcastle by dripping wet sand on a the spine from a single palm tree leaf  that I found on the beach (oh, the fun things you can find on the caribbean beaches!).  The leaf was pretty slender, so I couldn't put much weight ...

Melissa suggested the title.  Can you see the seagull?  This sandcastle was massive!  
...ok ok, it was barely knee high and only took a couple hours to make.  But I love that it looks so huge in this photo.

I was curious how far i could get the sand to lean over without the whole sand castle collapsing.  About a minute later, the tide <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/sandcastlematt/287350416/in/set-72157594201277972/">got it</...

The nice thing about making a sandcastle in a reservoir is that there are no tides nor waves to worry about (although lots of splashing from kids). So, I was able to make the entire castle balanced on a set of sticks in about 6 inches of water - a...

I made the best sand castle of my life today; tried something pretty different. It was a figure landing after a big leap with only the left leg touching the ground.  Just as I finished, his hip joint snapped, and everything came crashing down.  Al...

Crane's Beach, spring 2004.  Picture by Paul, I think.  I had been playing with drip castles for years, but this was the first time I tried making a scaffolding of sticks to lay the drip castle on.  I really enjoyed it, and have made variatio...

From the monuments and memorials to its great civic and government buildings, DC is full of amazing architecture, but in my opinion the city has two absolute gems - places where I can get lost standing still.  One is the Library of Congress -  thi...

Moms almost always like my castles, often more than their kids.  Kids usually ask if they can knock the thing down.  This little girl was quite different: the more her Mom encouraged her to appreciate the drip towers, the more frightened she becam...

The Arlington Res is a great place to build a sand castle. A tree covered berm seperates the chlorinated and sandy swimming section from the much larger drinking-water part of the reservoir. The water is always warm and full of kids and ducks. Oth...

What made this sign extra bizarre to me is that it is in the &quot;Garden of the Senses&quot; - a small, wonderful courtyard in Montreal's Botanical Garden designed for the visually impaired.  You are supposed to touch and/or smell al...

August 2004, photo by Melissa. Not a very good castle, especially with the gray muddy sand, but fun to watch the surfers - one of them said my castle was awesome!
