Day 194 – The Red Balloon

14 Oct

Do any of you remember this movie? I can’t believe it was the first thing I thought of when I saw this little girl. Granted theΒ  movie is about a boy but it is still the first thing that came to mind. She was having so much fun that I had to take a couple of photos of her. I will never tire of photographing children, they are just so beautiful and so full of life and energy.

    OOOOO The Red Balloon is a magical movie. Love it! To me it is timeless.
    I bet those red balloons would follow this little girl anywhere she went. I just love that sweet look of excitement on her face!

    That little girl hit paydirt, didn’t she? THREE balloons! My nephew would have been her best friend until she gave up one of them LOL! He’s 6 and loves balloons more now than when he was that little girl’s age. I love the photo. It captured the little girl’s joy.

    What an absolutely beautiful child! And picture. I don’t know how to explain it properly, but you just have a knack of bringing pictures to life, of truly capturing the feeling of the moment. You have a gift, Baby, thanks for sharing it with us.
