Balloon Launch, Part One





When I left my house last Friday, I spotted a couple of balloons that appeared to be attached to the local McDonalds. I took a quick shot then proceeded to the field behind the Clock Tower, where three balloons were getting ready to launch. I'll be posting the photos of this scene over the next few days. Please stop back!

Hey, thanks for the nice comment on my blog. I think that was a lady named Karin that was packing stuff up the tower. I was planning to go by myself when a friend asked if she could go and then she proceeded to ask two more--strangers to me and was a bit miffed but thought 'why not'. So a tower meant for no more than two was jammed. At least i got a bumbum shot out of it. HA! Had an ok time though. MB
