Balloon Launch, Part Five

After the first balloon lifted off, I turned around to see how the balloon at the opposite end of the field was doing and found that it had just lifted off as well and was floating over the Clock Tower plaza. Although it is hard to tell when the balloons are in the air, there is a considerable difference in the size of the balloons and capacity of the baskets. As you can see, this balloon only has about five passengers, while the blue and white balloons have as many as twenty.

Final post of this series tomorrow! Thanks for stopping by.

I like the cute little "underware" balloon much more! LOL

Beutiful photos. If you didnt tell they were lifting, I thought they were landing on the palms.

Love the color of that one balloon- so bright and cheery. This has been a real neat series George.

See all the people clutching the edges of the basket and looking at the ground with terror in their little eyes. LOL
Great series. MB
