100 foot (30 m.) tall light bulbs

In contrast to my previous vividly colorful posts, I also shot some black and white film at the balloon fiesta.  They hold an event on the last two evenings where balloon’s are inflate but stay anchored, then the pilots light them up with the burners while music is played.

I had quite a chuckle during this event because the female announcer said that this year’s theme is "Ecology" and "while watching we should think about what we can do for the environment and to stop global warming."  Not more than 30 seconds after that she counted down "3..2..1 BURNERS ON!!!" and everyone burnt huge amounts of gas to light up their balloons … 

Yeah … really eco friendly there …
