come[t] as you are

i was able to get out to check out comet neowise last night.

i am by no means an expert at photography, let alone, night time, long exposure space photography, but i was pleased with the pics i was able to get.  basically i've learned to take a lot because 90% of the photos will not come out right.  thankfully the subject of the photo was pretty chill and let me take my time. 

hopefully i'll be able to get back out before his comet dissapears for the next 6,800 years.

a [box of chalk] that never [runs] out

this weeks chalk art is brought to you by a huge new box of chalk, with several new colors, i received from my daughter for fathers day.

it's also inspired by one of my favorite movie scenes of all time, the elevator scene in "500 days of summer" where the two main characters discover their mutual love for "the smiths."

pretty in [chalk]

this weeks chalk art is brought to you by rain.  i've been letting mother nature decide when the slate needed to be wiped clean for a new sketch, but a lack of rain the last few weeks meant that damn hot air balloon enjoyed an extended stay on the sidewalk.  this weeks drawing was inspired by my love of pink lawn flamingos as well as the classic 80's movie i've watched twice this week.  due to positive feedback from the neighbors, this also represents the first piece i practiced and sketched out beforehand, to [step up my game] a bit.
