Team-Up Thursday: Week Twenty-Eight (UP)

UP diptych

This week's dip looks so simple, doesn't it? A cool shape, a few lines, a pop of color and voila! My shot is definitely less glamorous than Melody's with that lovely balloon soaring into the skies. We were actually at a basketball tournament on the roof of a parking garage, so we were already UP when I looked over and grabbed this photo. I was drawn to the lines in the frame and the possibility of going UP or down with the arrows.

Next week, we'll be tackling MORNING. I thought we'd better do this theme before school begins, when mornings are way more stressful than they are in the summer.

Remember to check out our flickr pool. Dive in while the water's warm!

What different ways to interpret. Fun! The colors in the balloon are beautiful. You have such imagination. I would have never thought to take that picture. They are neat together!

I think it is amazing there are no parked cars in your shot. ;) I like the combo though, different interpretations. Marty was thinking balloons this week too.

So here is our take on UP.

Kimberly said...

I looked at your shot and immediately thought, "That roof needs raised UP. It's way too low." So it definitely fits the theme. :)

Carrie and I were moody this week.

The texture in the concrete is a cool contrast to the smooth blue sky.
