Wow, two for two, I think I never had two consecutive ribbons, thanks everyone for your votes on my little one's photo!

The little stuffed lemur that he carries is with him since the first time he went to the zoo, around 2 to 3 years ago. They are inseparable, and when asked about it's name he always says Friend ("Amigo").

It's battered, worn out, the eyes are already very scratched, but he doesn't go anywhere without him (much like Linus and his blanket).

This past winter we went to a natural reserve park, and he met his companions:

He was so thrilled that he made the stuffed animal engage in conversations with the live ones!

Shot was simple, I just had to convince him to go outside (hence the balloon, which I probably should have made blue ;) and I used a long focal length to get the tunnel effect.
Processing is some color adjustments to give the vintage feel and heavy vignetting.

Thank again for all the votes and comments!

Priceless! This reminds me of an image I have of my grandson carrying his beloved rabbit; same story. Eventually his Mother had to find another just in case it got left somewhere (happened). He would not go to sleep without it. He is now eight years and doesn't carry it around but still has it. I miss those years. Thanks and congrats on the ribbon.

This is a well thought out shot - matching clothes to balloon, balloon just at the right spot, the look to the side, the furry friend perfectly visible - I can't think of what could have been improved
Congrats on the ribbon!
