Lens Artists Photo Challenge – Framing the Shot

Chalk artists brave the brutal heat and rugged pavement

to create beautiful works of art in  Venice, Florida.

Teacher artist, Rachel, created a playfully colorful street drawing.

Alton Glenn Miller (March 1, 1904 – disappeared December 15, 1944) was an American big-band trombonist, arranger, composer, and bandleader in the swing era. 

He was a well-known entertainer of the troops during World War II.

While he was traveling to entertain U.S. troops in France during World War II, Miller’s aircraft disappeared in bad weather over the English Channel. ©wikipedia

Artists travel from all over the world to compete in this chalk art fest.

The art theme for the artists to create was patriotism.

 

An area was designated for the budding children future artists to create their art.

This was drawn by an 8 year old little girl. It isn’t exactly patriotic

but I thought she represented human-kind very well.

There were many, many great creations. It was difficult to pick a few.

I decided to add the other photographs in this slide show.

    • Hi Tina,
      The opening shot was set up by the artist.
      You pplaced your camera into the lens area and could take a photograph. She wanted everyone to see it through an enlarged lens. The artist had the lens set up for viewers to showcase her artwork. It was fascinating. I hope to see her this year and ask about it. No time to chat with her since there were huge crowds and she was busy with her art.
      It’s a very unique art form. Glad you liked it.
      Hope you’re not in the line of Hurricane Dorian. We’re prepared and waiting. The deluge of rain has started. Blessings, Izzy 😎

  1. Great take on this Isadora! Love street art, but know it will disappear – I guess that is some of the “thing” with it. Nothing is everlasting, enjoy while you can. It is like Mandalas and the water paintings in China. Love it.

    • Thank you, Leya. I’m happy you thought it was a great way to approcah the challenge.
      My granddaughter just went to Italy in June to do a chalk painting at a festival they were having. She was thrilled to do it and get to site see a little.
      Mandala’s or any art that’s impermanent shows us the power of what life’s about in our day to day. What was a disaster today will not be important tomorrow. Have a beautiful weekend … Isadora 😎

    • It’s held every year in the same town. I love going to it because the artists are always different having their own ideas. It’s a shame that after the paintings are finished and voted on – by the public – the vehicles are back on the road and the art is destroyed.
      One year, it rained and they had a difficult time getting ahead of the raindrops. It’s meant to show that all is not permanent. Glad you enjoyed. Thank you … Isadora 😎
