photo above is a portion of one of The Sarasota Chalk Frestival's paintings. I look forward to seeing the profession photographer's photos to see the depth and dimensions of this piece.
(First of all I wish to say that I had intentions of posting this yesterday but that didn't happen. My hubby had to go in for another surgery to remove some rather deep precancerous skin cells. So I had to be available to drive him home after the surgery and to care for and keep an eye on him afterwards. Believe me, keeping an eye on him was no easy task, he wanted to run to the store and other places and did not want to just sit and rest. It was only when his surgical incision began bleeding that he agreed to sit still awhile and not to run around town doing errands.)
Photo above. Though I can see the cleverness of this painting I'm sure it would have been better viewed from above rather than on an angle.
Photo above shows a bright and colorful piece rich in whimsy, I have a feeling the little girl's bunch of balloons would really have stood out had I been able to stand just a few feet more to my left, unfortunately there were people standing a few feet more to my left.
Photo below is unusual as it is basically black and white, but it is rich in realistic details. I am fairly sure that when viewed from above it would have had some 3D definition.
Photos above and below. I thought this particular piece was unique. You can easily see how the marquee stands proud from the pavement, giving it an undeniable 3D illusion. But alas, again the piece was too immense to capture completely within my camera view finder.
Blogger is behaving petulantly this morning and tends to freeze up every few words and my cursor disappears as it goes through its, far to frequent, "save" procedure. I will however muddle through this. :D The photo below is of a local building that has been painted by an artist depicting a scene from a time long ago. The paint is in tones of black and white giving authenticity to its vintage quality.
Blogger is being incredibly annoying so I will stop for now and save the rest of my photos for yet another posting. I hope that I'm not boring anyone with what may seem like a very repetitive series of the same event.
