Less Talk....More Chalk

Chalk Festival
As promised, I'm posting more photos from the Sarasota Chalk Festival. This is Pineapple Avenue, where most of the artists were performing their magic on the pavement. Including...

...this very cool 3-D piece of a boy poking up from a tall bookshelf, which probably was my favorite. I believe it was created by a team from Brazil. It really popped off the pavement. And, then, there were pieces with incredible detail...

...human. Some made you feel like...

...you could walk on water. And, I continually had the feeling...

...I was being watched. It was another great event. 24 hours after it concluded, the street sweepers came through, and that was it --- until next year! After posting nine photos in the past two days, SDP's editor in chief is giving me a few days off. See you next week!

OK, the water one is freaking me out. It looks like those rocks are really standing up out of the water. My brain can't make sense of it. Was something dimensional sitting on top of the sidewalk?

I love the ones that look like they're real and actually coming out of the pavement.

These are terrific, SRQ! It is too bad the city didn't leave them in place longer.

Enjoy your free days. Hope you have your camera with you.
