I love the yellow balloon. It seems to tell a story all its own.

I love the way you've included the sky. In the first one, I thought it was a moon until I clicked to embiggen.

Although I appreciate sports stores, I have to say that I'm tired of the same thing everywhere. This could be anytown USA. I wish "we" could be more inventive with our architecture.
This is NOT a comment on your photo itself, just a thought your photo provoked, on how every town is looking like the other these days.

I know "Kohl's", what an unusual name. But a little bit sporting activity can't be false. Afterwards there is a small refreshment at "M". Have a nice day.

I imagine they sell sports gear... The balloon looks kind of lonely.

What's a Sport Authority? Thought that balloon was the moon for a moment.

Well I hope they do well there. The store closed down out here---all locations I believe. MB

I have one around the corner from where I live. It is filled with South Americans buying, buying, buying! I sure hope they keep it up.

Interesting clouds in that second shot! I like the yellow balloon too.

I have never heard of Sports Authority....but I have heard of Khols. My oldest started shopping htere when in college and she still likes it.

That yellow balloon kinda stands out, doesn't it? I love it against those interesting clouds.

Trillian said...

I really like this photos, especially the first one with the balloon alone in the blue sky...

Joy said...

It looks like a really bright sunny day in Ocala. That yellow balloon creates a lovely contrast.

Thanks for visiting Norwich Daily Photo and leaving your comment. See you tomorrow!

Very nice captures of tones and contrasts. Kohls, ah, I like shopping there.

I like the yellow balloon and its tail, nice contrasts against the sky.

I guess the economy must be on the upswing! :)

We love Sports Authority! It was a big deal to get one in Montrose.

Nice balloon. The white line of smoke/cloud on the upper part of the sky on the second photo shows that a jet has just passed.
