the last gasp of summer
For most of summer, a company has been operating a hot air balloon for tourists visiting Chicago’s Navy Pier.
Today, the air was let out of the attraction.
However, when I arrived, the balloon was still airborne.
As I started making a mental game plan for the shoot, I noticed a banner with photos on the side that showed a handful of kids well on their way to a major sugar buzz.
At that moment, I decided to hang out until the kid images got closer to ground level.
Finally after an hour of waiting, everything came together.
