Chalk Artist

In Paris, your eyes' options are limitless -- look up to the architectural wonders, over to the museum walls, through the stained glass windows of the cathedrals, or down to the chalk-covered sidewalks where artists create temporary masterpieces.

Perhaps the only thing more colorful than the well-tread canvas was the artist himself -- covered in his craft and nearly oblivious to the swarms of passers-by. His look and his art are frozen forever in this photograph that captures the essence of creativity in the most inspirational city of them all.
