Balloon Boy

A boy is dragged by his mother up St. Patrick’s Street at the Ceili Mor. He was playing with a balloon by punching it continually. I saw him approach and as luck would have it, err, I mean, I quickly composed this shot. I love the expression on his face and I’m very happy that I caught this moment!

What caught my eye and questions my mind are the little legs behind the boy in the stroller that looks like a girl with a band-aid or bump on one leg and a TRIBAL TATTOO on the other. WHAT!? I don’t know what it is really, but that’s a pretty serious gash if it’s not some kind of kid decal from a birthday party. I love pictures that capture accidental images. Or moments in time that were thought of as ordinary, before they became extraordinary – Like the guy who was filming the JFK motorcade. There is such a story behind them. Oh…and the kid with the balloon is cool too. 🙂 I love how everyone else is just legs…this is the world from his perspective. 🙂

It does look like a
“Tribal Tattoo”
