Photography and whatever

Memorial Day Sculptures

Every year around Memorial Day weekend, Heather and I travel to the Bay Area to visit our friends Kathryn and Brian and celebrate Brian’s birthday. Usually the highlight of our trip is a highly contested round of Trivial Pursuit, men vs. women, traditionally dominated by the men. This year, for a change of pace or perhaps just to give the women a chance, we got a couple of new games to play: Cranium and Pop5.

If you’re familiar with the games, you know that part of the fun is the making of play dough sculptures. If you’re not familiar, well… now you know. :)

Without further ado, here are some of our sculpture masterpieces from last weekend, presented without much judgment as to their artistic or aesthetic merits. No cracks about my shitty photographic skills either. :)

The men still dominated, by the way. :)
