And they that be wise shall shine in the brightness of the firmament.... as the stars for ever and ever.
Daniel 12: 3

I captured this candid in an old school building that was moved to the fair grounds...Two young boys were having a blast with their balloons in an impromptu moment while the lady who may have been a retired school teacher was answering a question from the young boy on the other side. These children no doubt are teenagers now and wouldn't be caught playing with balloons anymore but I loved the spontaneity of youth at that stage of their life.

    A great candid capture! The balloons are so colorful and no doubt a lot of fun, too. A terrific entry, Andrea!

    You captured reality!! My opinion is: If that lady were a teacher, she would have already had those 2 balloons confiscated by now! LOL

    Thanks for the comments & faves...You are probably right in your assessment Donald if
    this had been in an actual classroom during the school year..but it took place during the county fair in the summer time and the kids were just having fun during that one split second
    that I shot the picture...It didn't continue on after that...What is so unusual about this is that
    the lady was so involved with talking to the boy on the other side that she wasn't distracted
    by the balloons in her line of concentration or thought..
