winter wonderland…

Post image for winter wonderland…

i am in awe of these sculptures…the timing is also pretty appropriate, seeing as we’re expecting a bit of snow here in the northeast this weekend…

they’re from the sapporo snow festival, an annual event in japan that attracts about two million people who come to see incredible snow statues and sculptures like these.  this year’s snow festival actually starts today and lasts through thursday february 11.

these snowmen were made by festival-goers, who tied messages of good luck around their necks.
