Sculptures of Galveston

Galveston, Texas was hit pretty badly by Hurricane Ike in 2008 and many trees were destroyed. A local group had the great idea of turning the destroyed remains of some of the trees into works of art and today you can take a free self-guided tour of the more than 20 carvings scattered throughout Galveston. The sculpture in this photo is titled “Birds of Galveston.” My dad was the one who had the idea of taking the photo so that the neighboring trees that were spared by the hurricane are in the background.
