Photos of a Stranger

Every year in Mt. Holly, NJ, they have a Fire & Ice Festival. Ice sculptors and chili cookers come from all over to sculpt and cook. This is the first year I've gone, and by the time I got there lots were full, lines were super long, and the thing was packed to the gills with people. So I didn't get any chili, but I did see most of the ice sculptures, and some sculptures in progress. This sculptor was kind enough to stop and pose for me after his ice carving was complete.

Never fear - after we left, we went to a brewery where they were having a chili cook off, so I did get plenty of chili.
Clever to sculpt with ice.
