Dude on the Beach was Like an Artist in the Sand

Ryukyu Rusty spotted this guy throwing sand out of a big hole on Zanpamisaki Beach in Okinawa, Japan today.   Hah, I must have been looking for other things to shoot.  What was I thinking ?

Wondering if there was any water in the hole,  off the shoreline, I had to get up close. Nope, not yet.

The dude was digging with his bare hands and slinging sand every which way, like his life depended on it.

Here, I turned on the camera flash so I could get some shutter speed and you could see down there.

Two gals came over and started talking to me and I found out they were classmates of the dude in the hole.  They are all college students from the Okinawa Prefectural University of Arts. The girls names were Mei and Hiroka and they were very helpful getting me permission to post the guy's photo on my blog.  His name is Itosu Ryutaro.  The dude was really like an artist in the sand. 

Danged, if I didn't get so busy shooting this guy throwing sand out of the hole in the beach, I forgot to snap a few of the gals.  But, they weren't wearing bikinis or anything like that so, who cares?
