Having sorted out over half my picture albums I thought I would start to post them onto the forum under one thread. I think the majority will have been posted onto the forum at some time but many may have missed them or not been members when I originally posted. I have just set up a twitter account as well, my tag is myballoonart so if anyone would like to follow me then please do.

Where I'm inflating the White 260 this was taken at Guildford University where they had a fun day with Johnny Ball and the robot I think called Titus.
Me in the big balloon with head out, someone made this picture up for me from an original when I played the magic club meal for the magic club in the Midlands,
the name escapes me at the moment. I was on the bill with Alec Powell and Jason Steele and Joanne I believe.
Where I'm fully inside the balloon this was taken at Blackpool magic convention, one of my very first lectures.

Graham, I love the "inside the big balloon" but it scares me when I see someone totally inside it. I know there is lots of air in there but do you carry a pin or sharp object just in case?

I nearly mentioned this when Millie said about it looking/being dangerous. It is dangerous and generally I offer no advice, for safety reasons and to protect ourselves. Some people have panic attacks attempting to climb inside and I did post one on the forum about this if you do a search. On the website when buying the balloons there is a warning notice to say these are the climb in balloons but it is dangerous and we suggest you do not climb into them. All the info is out there on the internet or YouTube and Larry Moss has a book out about climbing inside.

These were the first two heads I tried before we got third time lucky with the style and that was by a mistake. This was made for Room 101 and has now been repeated possibly 5/6 times now. Just looking at heads one and two now and both I think would have been OK in hindsight, they have the craggy look :) Fingers crossed Alice does not read the forum :)

The first ape was my variation on Mr Bomas and his Monkey from YouTube.
I think the ape in picture three was taught by Sabina at the British juggling convention when she popped over so that is going back a few years now.
I think Sabina taught this at a few conventions now thinking about it.
