Last evening, while eating dinner, we saw two hot air balloons out the window. We grabbed the camera, but not in time to catch the red, orange and yellow balloon too -- it had sunk too low -- they were both about to land so we hopped in the van and chased them.
The orange balloon landed elsewhere and we missed the good shots, so we continued to follow this one here. The people were so cool and invited all the neighborhood kids to help pack the balloon. I love the shot of the kids jumping on the sack to get any remaining air out. Their little guy worked the crowd and handed out cards.
I think that's a genius way to promote balloon rides -- land in a subdivision -- how cool is that?
Now I just need to figure out what I did to make the red pick up as purple on the ground shots. See how the people's shirts and stop sign are still red, but the balloon? Not red -- purple. Hmmmm.
