Weekly Photo Challenge – Afloat

When I saw Afloat was the theme for this week’s photo challenge I immediately thought of a shot I’d taken earlier this week.

My back door faces east and early each morning I open the door to check out the new day.  Often I’m greeted by a beautiful sunrise but on this particular day there were three hot air balloons drifting past.

My building was once a hat factory, built in the late 1800’s. When it was turned into apartments a few years ago, the very tall brick chimney that was once part of the factory was left standing.  As one of the balloons floated past the chimney I took this shot.
