Balloon over the Rialto
Floating on the crisp morning air above the shimmering southern port city, a lone balloon surveys the busy streets as they come to life for a brand new day. The glinting glass of skyscraping towers wink to us in golden catches of light that play on their mirrored surfaces like molten liquid gold.
Fluffy clouds gather across the sky as it turns that brilliant blue of a perfect Melbourne morn, white and more picturesque than threatening. They soften the vivid sky in billowing balls of cotton wool. The city is waking up, its heartbeat rising with the sun, coming alive to face the world anew.
