The Red Balloon

How many of you saw the short film, "The Red Balloon" by French filmmaker Albert Lamorisse when you were younger? I found my own while walking through Cathedral Park. I hope you find some joy this weekend, Happy Friday!

I thought of that film as soon as I saw your photo. I saw it when I was a kid and still have a VHS tape as I bought it to show my daughter. A really neat film.

I remember the film, "Red Balloon."
Looks like you've got your own photo version.
Have a great weekend.

I've watched that wonderful film several times over the years, for my own pleasure and to introduce children to this charming tale. I see that you are still following it around. Yea! Keeps you young and alert!! Wonderful background for the balloon.

Captures like this are the reason one should always keep a camera handy cause you just never know what you'll see... Nice find Randy!

Thérèse said...

Yes, yes. Good capture indeed.

Terrific capture, Randy! I think I remember that film, but sometimes I hardly remember anything... :)
