The Smallest Chalk Artist by Ken Piros

This is the Toddler-istic art style that most young artist begin with. It is the easiest form to master and the finished work is usually met with high praise and hung in a coveted spot in the kitchen. Seldom if ever is the artist criticized for drawing outside of the box ….so to speak.

Another photographer and I saw this image transpiring before us at the same time. I asked the father of this little girl for permission to take the picture and moved to the same vantage point as the other photographer. I noticed he had a mid-range zoom, mono-pod and also an oxygen bottle and lines running to his nose to help his breathing. He stood and made his image while I bent down and took the shot from a lower point of view. Afterwards I commented to my wife that the other photographer was on oxygen and that he did not let his breathing issues stop him from following his passion. That is the great thing about photography you can still participate in it within your limitations and still produce wonderful works and feel fulfilled.

A beautiful picture and a lovely story of how it came about.
Photography is indeed a universal hobby that almost everyone who wishes to....can participate in its joys :))

wow, just look at her! focussed, concentrated, utterly devoted to her art, and already holding the chalk with an expert's hand and good grip, elbow flat on the ground – a miniature michelangelo… ; ))) great capture and thought-provoking caption to go with it, ken! i'm always fascinated with news about blind photographers… greetings, sabine.

Hello Ken,

Thank you not only for sharing a wonderful image of the little girl completely engrossed in her creation and completely unaware of both keen photographers, but thank you also for the back-ground story about how a young artist can join two passion, however different !

So apart from the delight taken in the explanation, I would also like to stress out the photographic reasons that make me vote a Pro:
A well chosen crop, with the little one a little off centre, a "simple" b&w that allows concentrating better on the subject, the "ground-floor" perspective, level with the child's point of view, all together make this a remarkable shot.
Best regards,

A masterpiece in a way. I would rather have had it a bit 'brighter'. PRO for the rest.
