higher, originally uploaded by gawdessness.

unexpected find
in the field behind the high school
pulled over the van so we could all watch it
bump slowly, and awkwardly
slightly up and then down
a little at a time
until there was only up

Fabulous! And the color of the balloon is just gorgeous!

Great catch! Watching the balloons float silently over head is a fascinating experience. I have not seen any in a while. I would see a few during my drive to/from work on those cool, windless days in spring and fall.

when we lived in the UK there was a balloon place nor far from our house.

we'd see them once, twice a week in the summer, floating over the fields...

so lovely!
