Red Balloon

A helium filled red balloon floats high above the clouds during a beautiful sunset in this picture that can be used to illustrate a wide range of concepts and ideas. Red balloons have become important symbols and have been etched into our subconscious through exposure to the french film of the same name in which a young boy befriends a red balloon that has a mind of its own. In the film the balloon is eventually destroyed by a group of bullies and balloons from all over Paris come together and carry the boy, via balloon cluster, high into the skies where balloons and children can be friends forever.

Red Helium Balloon

The red helium balloon in this photo can represent adventure, travel, the loss of innocence, infinite possibilities and more. The background can be a sunrise symbolizing new beginnings and a fresh start, or a sunset illustrating the end of an era, endings in general, and a conclusion. I prefer to think of it as a sunrise and, with the balloon, the start of something wonderful, a new adventure, the way forward and a bright future. In today''s Internet world this red balloon can even be used to refer to cloud computing and online interactions and streaming data. The balloon is at once fantastic and yet has its own fragility and vulnerability. This balloon in particular is stretch tight and thin becoming very transparent.This balloon can indicate success and achievement as well as danger and the unknown. It is also a perfect metaphor for getting away from it all. The balloon, after all, is on a journey. Other elements in this image include solitude and standing out from the crowd.

Red Balloons As Symbols

Red balloons have come to symbolize letting go, the loss of innocence, and creativity. The fact that helium balloons rise is a positive indicator, and the color red being on of passion indicates a passionate rising and a very intense creative period. Of course, red can also be the color of anger and violence, and a popping balloon also is a violent event. One of the great things about this picture of a red helium balloon floating through the clouds is that depending on the headline and type the image can be used to bring attention to an almost infinite number of messages and communications. Further, the image is easily cropped to square, vertical or horizontal with plenty of copy space for text, headlines, or even inset pictures. This balloon can be indicative of global business and global communications.
