Discontent by Nullermanden Discontent by Nullermanden
"My family went to Norway, and all I got was this friggin' balloon :|"

Another shot from Bergen, Norway (you'll probably see a couple more ;)). This time, I caught a little brat, being mad because his parents got him a balloon instead of a PSP.

Ahh, you gotta love the youth of today.

(PS: I have a soft spot for balloons, so that's not the last one you'll see either :lmao:)

-----

Why?
Because I have a soft spot for children. And balloons. Mix the two, and you got me chasing this kid down the street to get a clear shot (I'm not kidding, I got *crazy1ady as my witness). Then, when I finally caught up with him, I kneeled in the middle of the street and waited for him to notice me. He did. Several times. This being the last, when he was clearly annoyed with me! The Street Photography contest says I need to tell what motivated me to make the photo... Well, to be honest - I didn't think about making it. There is no time to think in cases like this - just act.

I guess it was all in the moment. A moment, I'm glad I didn't think twice about before shooting.

Where and when taken:
Bergen, Norway - August 24th, 2006.
