The Odd Couple

I thought of that title as soon as I saw these two floating side by side. This morning was the first, special shapes rodeo, where all the funky shaped balloons go up.


Sorry if I seem old fashioned... I just don't think Black helmeted, Dark Lord's should be in a relationship with a big Green monster. What would their kids look like? Is that where Alabama people came from?

    The only odd couple that comes from Alabama is when they mate with odd photographers from New Jersey! HAHAHA!!!
    Obviously you have refilled on your annual supply of hot air. LOL!!

    So this is where you fill up with all that hot air you spew throughout the year......guess you feel renewed! Entertaining reading and some fun PSng. I think that Darth Vader was here a few years ago during a balloon fest. This sucks pretty much like the rest of your stuff.

    Great capture...the key were the perspective and the focus on two of the objects, which make a story. Nicely done
