Balloon Man - Seattle WA - Pike Place Market

Balloons – just for you!

:  :  :

Here,

after having walked the Pike Place Market for three hours,

watching and ‘shooting’ all the daily setup activities of the vendors,

I was just about ready to call it a day

and head home.

:  :  :

Walking back towards my car,

I spotted this fellow

decked out in balloons sitting on the corner of Pine Street and Pike Place.

He looks a bit forlorn and very tired,

even though his day has just begun.

: : :

I got off a shot or two,

he then picked up his stool and supplies

and began walking along Pike Place, under the covered walkway.

I got off several more shots of him,

but never really got ‘the’ shot I wanted.

I had to settle for this one,

the best of the bunch.

:  :  :

Does that happen to you too?

You’ve got a great subject,

but before you can get the capture you want

they’re off and running,

so are you and that’s

the rest

of

the

story!

:  :  :

For any of you following my work injury last October and subsequent surgery and recovery,

you’ll be as pleased as I am,

I passed my return to work skills test yesterday.

It’s back to work baby!

Woot!
