On our way back from Harlem, Matthew and I stopped to pick up some cheese at the Westside Market on 14th St. and ran into balloon sculptor Zoom in the tunnel. We had met Zoom a few times before, and in fact still have a gift from him, one of his heart flower balloons, slowly shriveling on top of a dresser.
This time, we got this great balloon clown. Everyone was jealous of it. Or terrified. It was hard to tell.
Nothing seems to lower Matthew’s inhibitions quite like holding a silly prop does. Enjoying the reactions of strangers to the balloon man, he asked our train neighbor what we should name it.
He responded, “Charlie Sheen.”
Zoom’s web site at http://www.zoomballoons.com/ appears to be down, but I found an article about him on the blog Manalapan Patch. If you’re in the tunnel between the L and the 1 on the 14th St Sixth Avenue station, check out his work!
Truly a perfect photograph and story. It warms a grandmother’s heart.
