Where are my balloons?


There's a story here. A young girl ran out into the center of the mall and left these balloons sitting here. Before long, a younger boy, very agitated, came running to retrieve them! Big sister was teasing her little brother! He was not a happy camper!

A quite sad picture, am I wrong or the top balloon is black? You don's see many black balloons here...

Regarding your comment on my SW shot. I think those are little lens flares from the sun---or something. It just came out that way.

As to the moon show---what can I say!! Oh yeah--except that you must be right. per usual. LOL MB

Oh my! I have two sisters. I wonder if I did something similar to them. I might have. :)
