I will continue on with my Huff & Puff shots from the weekend. There are a couple more I will be posting that are somewhat more abstract in nature, but here’s a shot that show the preparation by a team and then a few more leading off into the background. Things start getting a little excited as the fans inflate the balloons before the hot air starts going in. It was about at this time on this particular balloon that someone noticed that the top of the balloon had been pulled loose (the part they take out to deflate it quickly), that was followed by one of the guys use of some choice words something to the effect, somebody screwed up! Like many things we attempt not all goes well each time.
