The Balloon Man of Kovallam on copyright

Ten years ago (wow) I published some pictures of the Balloon Man of Kovalam that caused an amazing comment thread in which families and old friends were reunited and I learned a little of the life and death of Buck Wray, the Balloon Man.

I was digging though a couple of his books – he gave me a copy of Book #3. Here are the dedication and copyright pages.

31 December 1994
Copy #84
Ask .. Receive!
You did … so … you will!
Too easy, huh?
Go Bruce Go!

Hello Bruce! I hope this finds you well. This is Buck’s younger step-sister, Sue Eddy. I was thinking of Buck today, having dreamt of him last night. And I thought I would come back and visit your site – which is quite old now for our part. I’m glad to see you still out there posting about all manner of things!

I want to re-thank you for posting your experience and bringing us all round together, but mainly for the stunning photos of Buck in his last years. I am an artist, a hiker, an animal lover and always hope that pays tribute to him.
I now reside in Phoenix, AZ, though I lived many years in Ireland.

Be happy! I wish you blessings of every kind 🙂 Thank you always.
