    Willie or Jiro is fine by me.

    Boy with a yellow balloon.

    Boy with a yellow balloon.


    I was waiting for the local parade to arrive at the central area of the town. Everybody's busy finding a good spot to see the parade. On one side of the street, I saw this little boy trying to puff some air to his balloon while walking. I was attracted to the yellow balloon more so with his expression while blowing it. Thank you very much for viewing.


    Nikon D70, Nikon 80-200mm f/4.5 - 5.6 kit lens, ISO 200, f/8 at 1/80 second.

    Great shot, Willie. This is an example of why I look at so many photos. This is a scene that I would likely never get to take where I live. The confidence and nonchalance of the child; his bare feet and the lack of a nearby parent make the photo even more interesting to me. Love it.

    Fantastic shot Willie, he is a definite wee character

    His gait and expression are brilliant and you have picked up the yellow in his belt and on the 'e' on the wall...Just superb.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Excellent shot Willie/Jiro. Shot at the right moment. Great expression, the feet, the yellow triangle, wonderful.
    Perhaps the top part is a tiny bit distracting, a tighter crop or a PP vigneting could work but I am not sure.

    Again congrats!

    I really like the way all of the colors come together, the composition, and of course the details already mentioned pertaining to the boy and his balloon.
