With apologies to the Fifth Dimension

The Balloons always make me think of that particular piece of music (and sp3 hybrids)


Great work!!

And… “Up, up, and away-ayy…”

Nice effect Terry …

Love the image but I now have that song running through my mind. . . ♪♫♪

Great classic song and great image

Great capture, processing and song…

It could be worse, it could be 99 red balloons (luftballons)…

Okay, you are officially in the dog house for that. :smiley_cat:


OOH I have opened a can of worms.

I was originally thinking of the Albert Lamorisse film “The Red Balloon” which I used for a piece of creative writing exercise in my post-grad year with some year 4 children. Then I thought the Fifth Dimension because I’d heard the disc on the radio a few days ago ---- but thank you @KenKv you took me right back to my schooldays because we learned German with a bit of help from song lyrics. I’ve not heard the Nena version of the song before ---- but I love it! Sorry anyone who dislikes the song in ANY version. I’d forgotten this song from the 80s.
Thanks also @nnjrob65 @AiDon @Kathy_9 @Laundromat for comments


Terry, tonight they will celebrate Nena on the German TV for 40 years on stage. Maybe you want to have a look. Starts 7:15pm UK time https://www.zdf.de/show/nena-nichts-versaeumt/nichts-versaeumt-100.html
