Experiments with a balloon

Aleks got a balloon at Dayboro Day today and insisted I draw a face on it, then after a while, that I put hands on it. He then had much fun throwing it around the place and I tried to track it with the camera.

None were particularly successful, but this one came close.

    I think you'd better stick to photography and give up the face painting :))

    Hey! It was by request - i.e. each facial element was specified by a 4.5 year old. :P

    haha everyone except the 4.5 year old says this is scary (well everyone on flickr anyway) and I just don't see it... Maybe it's the whole floating head with hands thing...and motion blur.

    Hmmm, could be Jeff ;-) I must say, tracking a balloon is rather difficult, especially at close quarters.
