Wow, great pics, Sophia. I especially like the giant cow. “Creamland”…heh heh.

That top photo is interesting. The people seem to be running toward the balloons. The balloons, on the other hand, appear to be pulling back, with downturned mouths, as if in horror.
“What are you going to make us do now? Fly you wherever you wish? Cart you through the sky as if we were mere beasts of bulbous burden? We are not animals! We are balloooooooonssss!!!!”
It almost broke my heart.
Great pics, by the way. I especially like the semi-deflated balloon, with the big smile, sort of lying on his back as if he’s just thoroughly tanked on gin or something. (Or perhaps that’s a post-coital position? I’m not familiar with balloon sexual practices. But he does look merry and satisfied.)

Looked like it was a lot of fun. I have always wanted to have a go in a hot air balloon.

Awesome shots, Neil. Looks fun:)

What a beautiful sight! Right now I can’t help but think of the song that was a hit when I was a kid: “Would you like to ride in my beautiful balloon, would you like to glide in my beautiful balloon…?” by the Fifth Dimension.

Pearl, that’s so funny. I was just teaching that song to Sophia today — Up, Up, and Away…
Leesa, it should actually be “Awesome shots, Sophia.”

The pics are gorgeous.
October 8, 2005 at 8:59 pm
that’s it. i definitely have to go to that festival next year.

Did you steal a balloon? That would made a great story if you did, Neil.

That is SO COOL!!! My husband has been a few times, back when he was a kid. Hope I get to see it some day, too.

Fabulous photos Sophia! I’ve always wanted to go to a hot air balloon festival! Do you know if there’s anything like that in driving distance from Los Angeles?

Oops..sorry Sophia!! Beautiful shots!

Thank you. Thank you for reminding me why I don’t do LSD anymore (quit a looong time ago).
It was the giant can of Alpo that did it, by the way.

Beautiful pictures! I like the one of the flower winking at the dog food can, very cute
