Flowers in the sky (I)

I wish I could think up great titles for my photos.  Other photographers are gifted at it.  I can’t seem to tie together words and pictures very well unless I’m matching a quote to a photo.  Even with that, I think I’ve done that so much that I’m not doing it well anymore because I’ve become complacent.  Or complaisant.  Or bored.  Sometimes all of the above which is a bad combination.

The balloon pictured above came by just a little while ago in tandem with another.  I don’t often see two balloons close enough together to get in one shot so I snapped plenty of shots.  I’m sure I’ll post a photo or two of the pair of them sometime over the next few weeks.  Of all the pictures I took, this was one of my favorites.  It looks as though the balloon is going to land in the trees.  To the right is the top of a barn that has fascinated me since we moved here.  I’ve taken a few photos of the barn.  You can find one of those shots here.
