In the Eye of the Beholder

One of our favorite yearly events in B'ham is the Welding Rodeo at the technical college.  No horses, cows, or cowboys involved, however.  It's a sculpture competition that takes place over two days.

Saturday is the competion between the professional teams who come from far and wide, one team from Denmark competes every year!  I am always amazed at what these teams can come up with in just 8 hours.  Here's a few photos of my favorites from this year's competion:

 This was done by a high school team and won 2nd place in Friday's division!

 Not a male only event!
 First place winner in Friday's competion

 I love this one of Mt. Baker!

 We loved the concept of this one, but wish they had used something smaller for the trunk, it's too disproportionate.

Done at last!
