All I can think about right now is "99 Red Balloons"

aaron b says:
Yah, where are the other 98?

The banana is an excellent source of potassium. I can't speak for the balloon.

This shot is bananas. Duh.

By the end of this week, I hope to somehow see a yellow balloon and a red banana.

What kind of odds are you giving?

Nevermind, I'll call my bookie.

What an absurd (amazing) premise.

Poe says:
the balloon will be flat by wednesday.

Also, what is up with the cropping? Not that it's bad but just wondering.

Can't wait to see what you are up to here. You have raised the bar pretty high so far.

wondermade says:
Crap! No kidding this was on my short list of photos to do. Balloon and banana. What in the world are the odds…

@Poe - At the end of this, I believe that a series of square photos side by side will make for a better overall piece. Individually I think the composition is better with a square photo. If I didn't crop the sides to make it 4x3 there would be a lot of unnecessary dead space on either side. The dead space on the right would be especially awkward as it would be cut off by the balloon.

bananas are more filling and you can compost the peel

Art. You make it.

yourfavorite says:
@wondermade - haha seriously?! Originally I planned for this to be two separate series, but then I realized I could work them into the same series and it would perhaps be more interesting. Sorry I unknowingly stole your idea. I found out one of my ideas had been stolen today. Had been wanting to speech bubble stickers all over town to see what people would write for years but never got around to it. Someone else did. CLAME

Vanbert says:

Beard Goggles says:
I'm going to go with banana.

Gorgeous. Looking forward to the rest of the week.

Dschonn says:
I'm way more familiar with the German version of that song, and am always put off by the English title. The name 99 Luftballons doesn't specify the color of the balloons, just that they're party balloons (rather than like a hot-air balloon or a weather balloon). They should be all different colors.
Posted: Jan 11th, 2010 - 9:49pm -
Dschonn says:
Or at least not necessarily all red.
Posted: Jan 11th, 2010 - 9:50pm -
Dschonn says:
Maybe all some other color.
Posted: Jan 11th, 2010 - 9:52pm -
Dschonn says:
Like blue.
Posted: Jan 11th, 2010 - 9:53pm -
Dschonn says:
Or yellow.

western dave says:
balloon. every time.

mackle says:
Hrm.. the Helium aspect DOES make it intriguing.. but I'm voting banana - more diverse.

the square cropping IS pushing the rules a bit but lets just hope no one else follows suit and starts doing the same...

HiImTerry says:
You have a better grip on the banana, so I'm going to guess that you're more concerned about the banana despite the fact that you're looking at the balloon. So, I'm going to go with banana.

@johnnyrebellious - i almost did "80s pop songs" as my theme this week, but didn't feel like blowing up 99 red balloons for one photo...

ThatGuy says:
