ODD SHOT MONDAY-- Balloon with invisible string

If you want to join ODD SHOTS, see Katney

I was riding the bus, on my way to Walmart, when I saw this. Got off the bus and took a photo of it. Even when I enlarged it, it does not reveal a string. . . HOW does it stay in the same place? I am sure there is a string but it is invisible to me!

I bet the string was white and just faded into the color of the sky. The balloon looks cool up there, though, with nothing else around it.

As a guy I once knew would say - 'It's UFO mate'.

Maybe it was one of those clear fishing line type of strings which you cannot see...?

I'm sorry if I missed this one last week!

What you see is probably a lost helium-balloon of some sort. They rise until they explode. The ones made out of aluminium can in fact be a problem for radar/air traffic since they reflect radar.

About Me

My photo
WELCOME to my blog. I hope you will return often.

I am on my third digital camera, all Olympus. I enjoy using it and sharing my photos. I also enjoy writing. I hope to share a little of each on this blog. My main blog is Postcards From the Northwest.

Kerri and I will continue to add benches to "For the Love of Benches Continued . . . " blog also. It is good to continue to share with her!

Continuation of the Kiggins House Re-model photos were lost when my computer crashed.

The latest city project, TURTLE PLACE, will unfold here as I have time to add photos. It is complete and maybe I can find enough photos someday to show you the final results. Next project after the two I am working on now. . .
