That's My World Tuesday / Chalk Festival in Pasadena, California USA

I really enjoyed walking among the artists participating in the "Chalk Festival" at El Paseo de Colorado in Pasadena, California USA
It was a gorgeous and sunny day on this past Saturday.
Most of the artists were huddled under sun umbrellas while they worked.
I like how the shadow of one of the artists is visible on this photo, and the hand of another is in the upper left corner.


I was SO impressed with this face!

...and these are just a few.  There were many more.

Great shots of this fun and colorful artwork, Carolyn. I haven't done anything with chalk on concrete since I was a kid, but it still looks like fun. I've never seen a chalk festival.
