The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge: “Grid”


In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Grid.”

Today my daughter, grandson, and I took a trip to the Adirondack Balloon Festival in Queensbury, NY. Although the wind kept the hot air balloons from flying this evening, the owners did try to inflate them for the crowd.

Knowing that this week’s challenge was ‘Grid’ I was mindful of finding a photo for the challenge. It didn’t take long. When the balloons were being inflated I immediately noticed the grids. So here are my choices for this week’s challenge.

I became so involved in taking photos that I lost my daughter and grandson for a while. Eventually we met up at the pizza vendor and actually found a little girl around three years of age who was lost. After calling out “Did anyone lose a child?” while walking through the crowd, a man turned to his wife and asked if she had their daughter. Both looked around and realized their little girl was missing. Her name was the same as the child we had found so they were reunited. It was scary because they had never even noticed she was missing. They had two other children standing near them and one in a carriage. We kept a very close eye on my grandson so there were no repeats.

Fun was had by all even though there were no actual flights. It was perfect weather for a day outside enjoying the sights and family time.

Love and Light!

  2. Thank you for visiting Cris. It looks like another windy day so I am not sure if they were able to lift today. They were very colorful and it was fun looking inside as they were being inflated. I shall return next year to see if they actually lift off the ground. I checked out your site too. Your photos are amazing!!


  3. Beautiful shots! You will just have to come to a Balloon Festival in Albuquerque, always the first 2 weeks of October. So glad you found your grandkids! What a scary moment! I have just returned from a week long boat trip on Lake Powell. Guess what I saw! A red dragonfly!! Of course, I thought of you. I took 1572 pictures. Haha!

  4. This is a wonderful display of beauty and bounty. The size of balloons and the colorful combination, the art on the balloon and the craft of making take off…all add ups to its grandeur and excitement.
    Indeed beautiful…
