"Balloon Man to HQ"

By RonnieAG
Two images from yesterday's Open Day in Pollok Country Park, Glasgow..........this balloon seller seemed to be on his mobile most of the time...........V 2 - the wee lads, now behind the seller, are having fun blowing bubbles.
The event was a lot quieter than in previous years and there was far less colour than I had expected.
At least this chap added some colour to the scene.

Many thanks as always for the comments on Weather Closing In and with special thanks to Brian {Brian65} for his User Award.

It's a wonder he didn't take off, Ronnie Grin Doesn't look as though it was very warm, judging by the clothing of the visitors. Carol

V2 for me, the balloons the kids are making are much prettier than the expensive ones.

All those balloons and they probably weigh no more than a couple of kilos together.

Phew, that is some balloon collection.. Love both for colour & clarity, but V2 with the bubbles has the edge.

A colourful character so aptly titled Ronnie.
Good image - wonder how many he sold?
Amazing how people can't life without a mobile attached to their ear now!
Pity ther weren't so many people at the Open Day - weather not so good?

The little lads are wanna be entrepreneurs.

Well, it looks quite colourful to me! Two super shots, Ronnie, on what looks to be a fun day out. I always wonder how they sort out the balloons when someone wants to buy one, without the rest floating away into the sky! Grin

I'm with Netta, I enjoy NOT having a mobile phone.
A colourful collection there, Ronnie, and I love all the comments about him taking off, and how he separates one from the bunch.

Great shot!Grin I really love It, and the title is great! It makes sense with phone, it is his business HQ, of course.... and the little kids added on more interests.. wonderful life! Maybe not for Balloon man's business on the ground, but good one is conducting on phone!

He's lucky they are not filled with helium as he could take off and end up somewhere in the North sea! Glad to see these colourful fun shots haven't gone down like a lead balloon!
