While all of the balloons are beautiful to see, I am personally fond of the special shapes ones. Before attending this event I think I had seen maybe one or two special shape balloons ever, so when I saw the large number and style of them here I was blown away – pun not intended. The special shape mass ascension days are the most popular with the children and we who enjoy them with just as much excitement. Today I will show you some of the special shape balloons that were for the birds 😉 The first photo is one of some of the other special shape balloons on the ground awaiting their turn to launch. I like this photo because it seems to convey the feeling that the balloons are in line saying “Is it my turn yet?”
In order we have these balloons:
Yellow Bird from Florida with Angry Birds from New Mexico peeking out from behind; they are ignoring that cat. Owlbert Einstein from Arizona getting the side eye from Whooz’up from Utah. Pegleg Pete from Illinois and Brazilian Birds from Sao Paulo next to Hummingbird from New Mexico with Whooz’up in the background.
Fantastic and colourful designs. Of course there had to an angry bird. Pegleg Pete is awesome. 🙂
There were so many amazing special shape balloons there! Pete is pretty darn cool 🙂
Those birds are sure full of hot air. I think they needed a “Rockin’ Robin” balloon in the mix of special shapes.
Well aren’t birds basically air and feathers? I wonder if that balloon exists somewhere.
That is just amazing. Great images, Teri!
Thanks. There were times when I wondered just where the basket went under some of these. More shapes tomorrow 🙂
I love Tweety Bird!
Sylvester and Pepe Le Pew were there too 🙂
Simply put, amazing, Teri! Great shots, too!
It is an amazing event and how it all gets pulled off and all of the pilots and crews and balloons (of course) WOW!
