The Balloon Guy

180. March to a Different Drummer

Marching to a Different Drummer

I went to the Farmers Market this morning. The April-through-October weekly ritual begins. I bought some spinach and a few flowers to plant, and took some photos of the Market and the crowd and the Capitol Building. (The Market is on the Capitol Square in Madison; the Capitol Building is in the center of the Square.)

On my way to the car, I noticed this delightful bit of graffiti. I love the balloon guy!

    This is SO perfect! I love the balloon guy, too! he’s showing up in my journal. Thanks for posting this–it takes a real discerning eye to get this.

    That is neat. He’s like the payoff for looking at all the rest – easy to miss if you assume each is the same.

    Terrific piece of wall art. I – too – love the little guy with the balloon. Great eye!

    I think if I were one of the little guys captured on the wall, I would be the one holding the balloon. Nice capture Bo…

    Love it! That is so cool. A couple more years and I am out of that rat race.
