Chalkupy! The tent city lives!

My “tripod” for the day.

I spent the afternoon filming this week’s Chalkupy event on the Plaza in downtown Oakland. I mounted my HVX200 on a monopod strapped to the ladder and filmed the entire process in one continuous take. I’ll eventually make a speeded up time lapse sequence out of it, showing the process from layout to chalking in.

In the meantime, here are some still photos I shot while the camera was running.

    • Thanks for the kind words. I’ve always liked watching hands work! With Chalkupy, it’s hard to shoot faces because everyone is always bent over looking down, but hands tell a good story here.
