Odd Shots from the Ground Up

You can find my Bridges between... post below this one.



This is the place for Odd Shots on Mondays. Post a comment here if you join us this week. The details can always be found by clicking the Odd Shots logo in my sidebar. I add new players to the blogroll every week. I remove those who don't participate after a couple of weeks.


One of our local car dealerships had a big remote sale this weekend. As soon as I saw the balloons, I knew I wanted to go take pictures. We waited till after our movie, though, and the light was fading. I edited these to lighten them up.







It's Day Nine of From the Ground Up over at My World in Pictures. Check in there to see who else is looking up.

Fun, whimsical shots! I love balloons, as do my piXies. Aaah, it's nice to be back for Odd Shots. I've missed you all! Here's my entry: Bloom Where Planted

Those balloons must look really strange in dim light. I love the ones strung across the sky like a line of homing birds.

Hello Katney,

I like very much the second photo. The composition of the balloons flying in the sky is great!

My odd shot is up too!

I wish you a very nice Monday so a good start to the new week!

It remind me of those '60's lava lamps, the coloured oil blobs floating. Very surreal.

Mine's up. Gotta run. off to catch the bikes.

Hi there!

Those shots are plain peculular, perfect for Odd Shot.

Mine's up. Found something whilst away!

Have a great week
Blue

That's a great string of balloons!

Car dealers always seem to be having some kind of "car party". But with raising gas prices I'm thinking the time for a party would be if they have, the difficult to come by, hybrids.

My Odd Shot is up. I scream for Ice cream :)

The dealership must be aiming for a light mood in which to spend money.
Just for a lark...

I have always wondered how high those strings of balloons go and whether they intefere with small planes. Do they bring them down at night?
My odd shot involves fossils...

Luke said...

two great shots! really nice!

Debbie in NC said...

Are the balloons indicating how high gas prices are going? I love both these shots! Great job!

Balloons are always happy things!

Paulie said...

Great catch! With soaring gas prices, they have got to do something spectacular to attract customers to buy those gas guzzlers!

I have had mine up since midnight but forgot to stop by and say so. Doing that now! Ü

I love the angle you have on that first one. A lovely burst of colour in a dim sky.

Thanks for visiting my odd shot. Believe me... Bubble is odd! Even for a cat... ;0)

JC said...

Lol, funny... it reminded me of a lava lamp, too!

marcia said...

My first time Balloons are so fun

B. Roan said...

Yep, those balloons are odd alright. Great placement though. BJ

Kim said...

Balloons are so fun. I love how they are out of focus, like the are flying away.
Mine is up!

raf said...

We're on the same page today, I think, Katney. Colorful circular shapes, oddly arranged. :)
Your balloons are way cool!
Thanks, as always, for hosting this fun meme.

andrée said...

I like that second photograph so much. I only hope the ballons didn't break loose and fly away!

Lilli & Nevada said...

that was a odd way to capture the balloons but very creative
