A helium balloon, escaping into the great blue beyond, in black and white. I got this balloon for my sixteenth birthday (2007-08-17), and by nine days later, it still was trying to get away, so I set it free and photographed it. I’ve given out print copies, but this is the first online publication. I hope you enjoy it.
I switched to black and white, cropped out tree branches that snuck into the frame, and made the sky and balloon almost black with the curves function.[quickshop:4*6 Fly Away (lustre):price:0.95:shipping:0.45:shipping2:0.45:end]
