Finishing up the 52 Weeks – with photos of the volunteers at the Extreme Mudwars in St. Petersburg. It is an event held on Saturday and Sunday in July, where teams sign up to compete in various challenges involving mud such as football, tug-of-war- obstacle course, dodge ball, belly-bumpers, etc. with the money going to a local charity. They fill lots of sand bags to encase the mud which is cleaned and sifted top soil. Add water and voila – mud. After the events, there is a second event later in the week for teenagers. When that is complete they break down the sand bags and till the top soil into the area above Spa Beach where grass will be sown. It will have a wonderful new lawn that will last until the next year when some event will cover it up again. What a job – and that mud stains. (mine took 4 hours soaking and 2 washes to get the stain out). Let’s hear it for the volunteers.
Thank you for following this 52 week photo challenge. I hope I entertained you with some different interpretations or views of other places this year.
A whole new 52 week photo challenge starts soon (August 1) – with all photographs that were taken after August 1 only, so all new themes and new adventures to begin next week. I am still working on selling the house, so there might be an interruption or two when that happens, but I will be back on it as soon as I can. Photography is my sanity check and allows me to still be creative.
