Photographer's Note

Summer Sand

Shifting and slippery sand
Nudges and tickles my toes,
Waterfalls out of my hand,
Clings to my face, to my clothes.

Strange that you once were a rock,
Crumbled by frost and by sea,

Children's Digest July, 2006 by Weidum, Catherine Mary.

Children play with sand differently and learn different things from sand play as they grow. Sand play is valuable for children from toddlerhood through the school-age years. Sand play gives children a chance to explore science concepts like wet and dry, volume, pouring, and sifting in a hands-on way. Also it helps children develop in three areas: physical, cognitive, and social-emotional.

We know that children play for hours if they are in the sea-shore. The child in the photo was carried away so much with playing sand in Yalikavak/Bodrum that I wanted to frame it.
