Weekly Photo Challenge: Symmetry

Some balloons at Albuquerque’s Balloon Fiesta 2014 were notable for their imitation of familiar characters, but others were notable merely for their symmetry and color.  As they floated skyward with little more sound than the click of camera shutters in the background, these peaceful, geometric balloons were simply poetry in motion.

    Lovely and cheerful! Have you flown in a hot air balloon before? I’ve been itching to go on a hot air balloon flight!

  6. This is beautiful, I would love to see it but even more, would love to go up in one.

    • You’ve read our minds. We even looked into riding in a hot air balloon, but we didn’t think of it ahead of time. I guess these things are booked way in advance. But what a treat to anticipate! Thanks for taking a look.

  7. you got it! Perfect symmetry. 🙂 –Curt

  8. I have been working on a short list of places to potentially visit this year, and this was close to the top. I went several years ago, the weather did not cooperate, and the balloons didn’t leave the ground. I want to go back and see it all. 🙂

  9. Gorgeous choices.


  10. Wonderful post. Your previous post on St. Augustine Light would also have been perfect for this challenge.
