...shadow shot...

when i was 5,
he said, my family
forgot and left me at the fair.
i wandered around in the
bright sounds and smells of hot sawdust
and cotton candy for hours.
it was already too late by the time
my parents found me.
i haven't been fit for a decent society since.

up, up and away.
in my beautiful,
my beautiful balloon.
love how the soft 
shadows hide in the folds.
i was part of.
relay for life.
last night.
this was at dusk.
what a beautiful day.
i hope you are having the same.
just BE.

Ha! At least he remembers why he's not fit for a decent society yet. I haven't figured out my reason yet. :)

Unusual shadows!

Ah, I have to agree with EG, I haven't figured out my reason yet either! But I do love balloons and my ride in one several years ago was the most fun ever! I loved looking the birds in the eye! Great post and words for the day, Robin! Enjoy your weekend!!

The fabrics and stitching allows for the hot-air fired billowy shadows that the sun playing off of the balloon. Shadows that are puffy and friendly looking. The imagination is so intrigued as this heavier that air object actually rises into the heavens. A wonderful view!

Lovely soft shadows in the balloon folds! Almost looks like a side view inversion of a very comfy chair!

I think I will nestle down in those soft folds with the shadows and have myself a little nap!
