As they fill with air, hot air balloons seem to hit a threshold where they suddenly begin to float up and start to accelerate. While completely artificial and colorful, there is something very natural and organic about seeing dozens and dozens of them. It’s not unlike seeing a dandelion release it’s seeds to the wind, or bubbles floating up in clear water.
After airborne the balloons floated over houses and city. Any number of things taking over the sky above your head can be distracting or annoying, but the balloons were peaceful and beautiful, gently floating around like flowers swaying in a breeze.
