Don't Pop My Balloon

Would you like to ride in my beautiful balloon?
Would you like to glide in my beautiful balloon?

     This morning right after breakfast I looked out and there was a balloon floating by! I'd seen the same balloon a few days ago and it was right over my house. This time it was a little further away.

     One of the things in my bucket list is to go on a balloon ride. This might just be the trigger to get me going.

     Then I thought about all the sayings about balloons. There are sayings for many occasions and moods. And then there are songs. My head feels like a balloon!

     Then I looked at the photos I got of the balloon. When I started looking over the photos the balloon was gone so I couldn't try making different shots. Obviously I have to include something in the shot that is a reference point. It was fun to work with the zoom on this one. I'm a little wiggly when it comes to handling a zoom.

       Sometimes you get the unexpected in a shot. I saw something on the right of the balloon. When I blew it up I noticed it was a sea gull!

    What's your favorite balloon saying or song?
