The Brushmaker

Master crafter
Graffities vapour
Busker of tools
Heartily capers
Ephemeral jewels

A snapshot en route this morning. To disclaim vandalistic concerns, the brushmaker’s pen was inked with merely water. I tuned up the contrast only to highlight his “ephemeral jewels”.

      1. Hi Colin – mostly Beijing, we had an office there until recently and I was a regular visitor. BTW, headed to Hong Kong on Sunday for two weeks. Always a great city!

    1. Thanks, Jade. It’s spontaneous like busking and, like easy-listening, has a magical calming effect. What I felt poignant though is the transience of the art and its service to the tools, not the other way round.
