no, thanks to good old-fashioned gravitational pull it's still slowly deflating in my living room.

Very neat! I love the flatness of the balloon; I thought at first that it had been added in Photoshop

At any rate, this photo makes me happy

I'm lovin this photo. I like how the yellow is offset by the green hue of the background, its a great color scheme. The curves also reflect throughout the photo, on the forehead, the baloon, the eye, and the chin, which really bring the viewers eye looping around the photo again and again. Lastly, I'm impressed with the sharpness you maintained even lighting through a baloon. Must have been a really durable baloon to withstand a hot halogen light!

thank you for your thoughtful and insightful comment!
it was just a bit of fun that i happened to get a good shot out of.....mucking around really.
it was one of those big punch balloons that are pretty hardcore..left over from a friends birthday!
the sharpness is due to zuiko lenses....:D
again, thank you so much for your comment, thoughtful crit is always appreciated.

In math, this is called a loop.

Okay, well it was all cool until observation and thanks got dragged in.

That's crossing the line.

I just noticed I have a bruise on my hand.

skipping across the line, in my book. humble apologies.

My left. Like on the back in the center. I have an odd compulsion to keep pressing on it.
