Photo Challenge – Simple


The Title for my Challenge this week is–

THE MOON’S A BALLOON

The Moon's

A Balloon

I hope one can see  my idea and simplicity of the theme these photo’s.

I myself actually quite like these photographs. But what makes them distinct is the fact they were taken several years apart in different parts of the country. Here they are together on the same page, same web space, in fact it is ‘Gerry’s Space’.  How surreal is that, two completely different types of photo’s now at home together on this one page.

I will be probably putting another post with this theme in mind.

Enjoy my theme –  ‘The Moon’s a Balloon’

UPDATE:  

Thank you every one of you for calling in and liking and leaving comments. I only put these pictures on the page just to participate. But it has gone above all expectation, and with all this attention, the ‘Candle Lighter Award’, it has brought tears to my eyes and my emotion very high.

Standards are so high it makes it harder but we all will meet it. So I say to YOU ALL, a very big THANK YOU and please return.

  15. Wonderful! Did you have to crop either picture to make your moon/balloon look almost exactly the same size in both? (I think it’s the size and position (near) match that really makes me smile when I look at the two pictures together.)

    Comment by newpillowbook | January 21, 2012 | Reply

    • Firstly thanks for visiting and commenting and in answer ‘No I did no cropping at all, what you see is how they were taken.
