Madeleine Monday

Madeleine At The VIP Tent, Forest Park Balloon Race 2015-09-19

Yes, she is.

A brief interruption in the Japanese Festival series. The annual Great Forest Park Balloon Race was held Saturday afternoon. (I'll get to those pictures before Halloween. Promise.) It's always packed and you have to park at a vast distance. However, you can buy tickets for a reserved area with large tents for shade, plenty of seating, food and drink and close-in parking. And no riff-raff. But when I saw what they were charging it was obvious that the letters stood for Vastly Inflated Price. 

Nevertheless, I sprang for tix for the family. Much more enjoyable. Ms. M had never seen hot air balloons before and got a big kick from it..

Ha Madeleine will always be a vip with or without a vastly inflated price. Nice shot.

I think I'd be tempted to VIP it too Bob :) Madeleine gets prettier every time we see her.

Very interesting story and perfect composition for this shot. I'm enjoying seeing miss M. again. Oh those eyelashes!
Sorry I no longer comment as regularly as I used to but visiting is always a great pleasure, and I get to enjoy a bucketload each time.
