A Girl and a Balloon

When my nieces came to visit us yesterday, the older girl spent some time going from our living room to dining room to kitchen while trying to keep a balloon in the air without touching it. She was surprisingly good at it and managed to do at least two rounds before the balloon touched the ground. And I managed to get about one single ok photograph during those two rounds. I’m embarrassed to say how many really bad shots I took to get that one ok one. To my defense, it was bad lighting in my house and I didn’t want to bother her with a flash, so I ended up shooting all those images at around 1/80 sec, which makes it really difficult to get a decent image of a moving subject.

(50mm, ISO 1000, f/3.2, 1/80 sec)
