What a wonderful hour I spent in the city centre on Saturday - the sun was out, and there was lots going on.
This chalk artist in New Street was definitely of more interest to me than what he was drawing. He moved around a lot and so it was possible to compose shots from different angles. The only thing I have changed is the bright green border to his work which didn't work at all for me
Thanks for looking and for your interest in the entrance to Hurst Street which is the main street of the Birmingham Gay Village

he seems to be a good chalk artist indeed Helen pity that other guy was standing there but always difficult to get a clear shot with others wanting to see as well good detail and love his attentive expression

Nicely done Helen - a far more complimentary border added to his work. (I think he must have been influenced by some of the borders on ePz).Grin
