Adivinanza

I listen to the words of the great artist, Louis Armstrong, “Seems to me it ain’t the world that’s so bad, but what we’re doing to it.  And all I’m saying, what a wonderful world it would be if only we give it a chance.  Love baby, love baby, that’s the secret.  Yeah, if lots more of us loved, we’d solve lots more problems.”

Hands of Time

I think of the life they have and how each day they race against the hands of time. They persevere for as long as they can, journey one place then another. They make their way through the life, never stopping long before making their way. I ponder … stop a while to enjoy the journey. Take moments with the ones you love, try something that you have always wanted to do. It is never too late. I hope you enjoy your day today. If you have a moment to share a little kindness; you may just make someone’s day. All the best.

La danza de la Mariposa

I remember her so vividly. The purr, the wonder, the affection; our little kitty shared many years of wonderful adventures. In our minds, our little angel still dances in the gentle wind. Transformed into a Mariposa, her spirit rejoices.

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!
