Another from the Tavistock Balloon fest. A very realistic-looking rolled up newspaper floating in the skies.

AH AH; very funny. Do you have today's edition :) By the way mark, your hot ballons series is really great, it is just the perfect rendering of the subject. (if perfection exists).

Cheers, Melkan. Such kind words are always great to get. I've still got a few more to go so watch this space...

Thanks Alan... I was v. lucky that the headline turned to face the lens when conditions were right. ...You gotta have that element of luck!!
