This photo was taken on the south side of Bryn Mawr just east of Broadway. Chicago, Illinois (Edgeater). I was walking down the street when I saw this woman, along with a couple of other artists, painting street scenes. She was unaware she was being photographed.
The camera was a Panasonic DMC-FZ50. I used ACDSee Ultimate 10.4 on the JPG file to adjust the lighting and boost the contrast and vibrance.

She looks totally absorbed in her work but I wish I could see more of the picture she is painting.
Unfortunately the way she was standing blocked it. I didn’t even get to see it when I took the photo.
Very nice, indeed!
Very nice shot, Gary. I’m curious how a street in Chcago get s Welsh name – is its origin lost in the mists of time? (It means ‘big hill)
I didn’t know the answer to your question so I looked it up. The area was developed in the late 19th century. Before that it was farm land. The developer named the street after a train station in Philadelphia. I find that it translates to “big hill” to be hysterical. There are no hills in Chicago. Except for a very small glacial ridge, it is completely flat. In fact the majority of the state is very flat.
Well thanks for looking it up for me, Gary. Big hill may have been something the developer was missing about the place, and so he named ironically 🙂
That could be.
