During Nik Wallenda’s recent walk across the Grand Canyon local residents gathered in downtown Sarasota to watch together on the jumbotron. While the crowd waited for the main event there were several performances by the members of the Sarasota Circus. I managed to get close enough to grab a photo of these 2 very strong men that I thought would fit nice with my Point or Pointed theme. They definitely had very pointed feet and hands!
Today I was finally able to get downtown to the Sarasota Chalk Festival. I think this is probably my favorite annual event in Sarasota. Last year I was able to go every morning and take photos of the artists daily progress. I wasn’t able to do that this year but I did finally make it today before the forecasted rain arrives tomorrow. I just shake my head every year when I look at all the beautiful work and think it will be washed away forever with the first rain….
So, here are a few of my favorite chalk drawing that I admired today during my walk downtown!
