Concrete Images

I went out today looking for one thing, turtles, but they'd hidden somewhere in the creek bed. However, I did find children's chalk drawings on a sidewalk and a brand new hole in the ground that I just had to inspect. The drawings tell me there's a kid in the area with some talent while the hole revealed the textures left behind by the backhoe and the sand dumped in to cover the gas valve that had been replaced.

There were two people making art today: the kid with the chalk, and a man who scribed textures into  the cement with his backhoe.

Hoorah for found art! That middle photo reminds me of the astronauts' boot prints on the moon.
Nice to see a kid drawing creatively rather than just scrawling tags everywhere.
