I hope you enjoyed my Chalk Walk Series of photos and thoughts. I am thankful that these amazing artists shared a moment of their creativity. Their inspiring work portrays a spirit about the joy and love for art for art’s sake. Thank you to each artist for taking your time to create something wonderful. Best regards.

The Chalk Artwork Set 4

Truly inspiring work. The creativity and artistry is so inspiring. The photos are just a mere glimpse of these works of art. I still ponder the idea of the art only persisting until the next rain. Here today and gone tomorrow, but not forgotten. The spirit of the canvas roar may awaken the inner artists in many of us to have the courage to participate in the coming year. If not participate, at least to admire the time and patients these artists took in crafting their vision.

The Chalk Artwork Set 2

This is a time I wish I had a ladder in my camera case. It is very hard to get the perspective of a very large flat canvas (in this case pavement). The photos are mostly with my 28mm. A few are with a 55mm as well. Such beautiful work from local artists residing in and near Round Rock, Texas.

The Chalk Artwork Set 1

Wow! The artists at the Chalk Walk festival really were amazing! I captured photos Saturday night, but it was a bit too dark when my wife and I arrived at the Dell Diamond so I only captured a couple photos. I came back Sunday morning and unfortunately the sun was bright and with my 28mm I needed to stand a bit further away then I would have liked in order to keep my shadow from being in the frame. Some of the photos were also in the shadows due to some tents nearby.

A photo walk within the Dell Diamond

Along with the Chalk Walk the Dell Diamond was open to walk around. It was a fun opportunity to take a photo walk within the baseball field. My wife and I have been to a couple ball games, but having the chance to explore and admire the field was great. Take me out to the ball game!

Chalk Walk Artists

The Round Rock Chalk Walk (www.chalkwalk.org) is this Friday and Saturday (10/4 – 10/5). It is my first time to take photos of the artists. I just happen to be coming back from an appointment in the morning and I stopped by the Dell Diamond to see if anyone had started to paint their visions.

The cautious tales of a rabbit

As I watched the rabbit watching me as I took it’s photo, it brought me back in time when I was very young and first watched Watership Down. I pondered as a story unfolded in my mind about the times we live in.

Sun burst

We have but one big blue planet and the true giants have been protecting it for many years beyond our time. They are not there to listen to our bickering, but rather to preserve the balance and sustain every land. Perhaps we could learn from these giants among us. As I look up, I ponder.
