MBS


On the first day of autumn, we opened a package of sidewalk chalk. It's okay that we're a whole season behind on some childhood rites of passage!

I love this shot...the colors contrasting with the gray are beautiful.

That's how I feel--we're doing more beach and swimming than in July!

Great shot, I really love the textures.

Brittany said...

Creative shot. The diagonal and soft pastels against the gray are striking. It can't feel like fall at your place, can it? Hot as heck here .

Great shot.

Hey, so long as you get around to it, who cares what the calendar says?

We didn't do much chalking through the summer either! Really fall is better for all those outdoorsy things, when it's not so stinkin' hot. (tho it's still in the 90s here!)

I like your diagonal compoistion, and those colors against the gray concrete are striking.

I never would have thought to take a shot like that - and I love it! What a great shot!

Fabulous composition and color contrast...I adore this shot. It makes me think of days LONG gone with my now 18 year old. We always waited to do sidewalk chalk until it cooled off a bit outside. You are not late at all! If you try it in mid-summer here, the concrete is much too hot! Beautiful job, my friend.

Oh I love sidewalk chalk. When I was little we had a carport so we could even use the sidewalk chalk on the concret in the carport when it rained. Great angle.

Great shot! Who cares if you're behind! Until it gets really cold sidewalk chalk is a must!

beautiful picture. sometimes these "rites of passage" work better when it's not so hot out!

Cari said...

Sidewalk chalk is a wonderful thing anytime! Hope you had a fun time.

Love that shot. Looks great on the black background! Best wait til Autumn so the chalk gets rained off and you can do another one!
Thanks for your kind words on my blog btw. Glad you liked the new header...but why would YOU need anything new? Your site looks great!!

Love the perspective in this shot. I have to say... I hate sidewalk chalk in the summer. The pavement and sidewalks are just too hot. Fall is a much better time for it!
