Join this man.
Stockholm-based photographer Viktor Gårdsäter's series Balloon Man's Last Walk, was spotted over at Booooooom. These shots of a handsome old man roaming the streets and countryside with a dolphin-shaped balloon are somehow both melancholy and whimsical, reminders of the joy and wonder of life as well as of its inevitable conclusion. Go on a journey with the balloon man, and then be sure to wander on over to Gårdsäter's website to see much more of his wonderful photography.
