Last summer, there was an abundance of street artists here in Toronto.  This young woman was a street chalk artist, busily creating Ariel, the main character in Disney’s 1989 movie “The Little Mermaid.”  She was working very slowly making sure the colors were perfect.  I was mesmerized. It was just so amazing how she mixed colors using a limited number of chalks.  I just had to take pictures of this very talented girl.

But by then, a professional-looking photographer got in the picture and started shooting this way and that way using his obviously expensive camera.  I waited until he finished but this showoff would not move out of the way.  As I had to leave shortly, I didn’t have a choice but take pictures of the street chalk artist and her creation with the darn photographer also in action.

I guess in this case, size mattered.  You know, the bigger the better.  Camera… I was talking about camera.
