grains of sand ... i would do anything for love edition ...

"will you make me some magic, with your own two hands ...
can you build an emerald city with these grains of sand ..."

Today is Sunday once again ... and Sunday would not be the same without Kathy's Song~ography linky party!  Each week Kathy has a "fun mash~up of photography and song" ... a visual song, if you will.  This week's song is "i would do anything for love" by Meatloaf.  

Hmmm ... i was not sure about this one.  All week i gave it thought ... alot of thought ... perhaps too much thought.  
And i kept coming up with nothing.  I guess you would say the music just didn't move me.  
Then finally yesterday, i decided to give the song one last look ... and there were some lyrics i must have overlooked ... "can you build an emerald city with these grains of sand".

 Every year i travel down to Sanibel island for the winter ... it is my heaven on earth kinda place. I always try to pop over to the mainland just to see the unbelievable work done by amazing sand artists from around the world. It is truly a labor of love to build these beauties from just tiny grains of sand!

So there you have it ... i found a photo to mash up with meatloaf's song ... just in the nick of time! 

If you have a few moments ... be sure to click here to join in on Kathy's song~ography linky party ... and see what others did for love. 

until next time ...
