Water paints

June 2009
I used to see people in Beihai park drawing on the ground some hanzi (japanese would call it kanji) with water and very long pencils. I was quite surprised when an old man suddenly looked at me with a large smile and began to paint me on the ground. He needed hardly 30 seconds to do what you can see on this picture. More and more people stopped and began to look at us.
J'avais l'habitude de voir des gens dans le parc Beihai dessiner des hanzis sur le sol (kanji pour les japonisants) avec de l'eau et de longs pinceaux. j'ai été plutôt surpris de voir l'une de ces personnes subitement me regarder avec un large sourire et commencer à me dessiner sur le sol. Il lui a fallu à peine 30 secondes pour faire ce que vous voyez sur la photo. De plus en plus de promeneurs s'arrêtaient autour de nous.
