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.

      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.

    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. 🙂

It makes our day to hear from you.
