His brother's balloon escaped but they were able to see it for ages in the grey sky.

Hi Mo...

This is an AMAZING photo!!! I'm coming to London in April for spring break but before the 'Wedding."

Cheers,

I agree, an amazing shot! If it was on flickr I'd make it a fave.

Makes you wonder if it fell and some other child was able to pick it up? Sure is a bright red in your photo. I suspect the London looks like this a lot.

Ah, The Red Balloon, one of my favorite movies. It's a great photo...you should frame it!

Caroline said...

I also remember watching The Red Balloon - about a little boy in Paris. This is lovely Mo!

I don't care for the technique of converting a color photo to B&W and then erasing is bit of it to bring a spot of color back. (It usually seems to be roses or a red dress.) You did a better job, letting the splash come forward naturally. I like how you kept the balloon on the gray sky.

This picture has not been photoshopped to acheive an effect. This is how the day actually was and how the image was taken in camera.
