Forced Perspective

It's those trick pictures--you know the ones where you line things up just right so that little Jimmy is sitting in the goldfish bowl staring at the fish or the Chihuahua is bigger than the Great Dane. That's the theme Craver gave us this week.

So we went off to the Balloon Rally with the intent of creating some forced perspective shots.

They aren't as easy as you might think. Especially since the balloons move once you get your shot idea lined up. We  had quite a few fails.

And some close calls.

before we gave up and decided to go chase the balloons.

So I went back to the two trick shots from my archives.
 Alaska 2009 and Seattle 2008
I am still not sure which I will choose for the header. You can see what the other header challengers have chosen by clicking their links in my sidebar.

I like how you made those shots look like he was moving the balloons around. That was good of him to play along and help make the shots.

Really enjoyed your work with the balloons.

Lovely! You got to know which way the wind is blowing to get those balloon shots. My favorite is # 8 reaching for the pair of balloons.

I love your balloon pictures! I really like the one where your husband is almost hugging (giving a kiss to?) the balloon. Neat!

Great photos, I love to see balloons. Don't know if I'd want to ride in one though.
