Event Photography, Balloons over Waikato, New Zealand March 2012

Up goes the first balloon

And it's all about the logo's

Clash of the striped balloons

 This is supposed to be a crowd pleaser, why are you girls not smiling?

Best view of the whole event up here

And here

Yes it's all about the logo's and what exactly is Remax?

Everyone framed by balloons 

Inflated balloons and decapitated heads, is there a connection?

Head looking like it's inflating the balloon

And here comes the nose, bouncy, bouncy.

Joey and Mother Kangaroo following their noses towards a giant blue, striped balloon

That nose from another angle

Happy Joey's, Australia is well represented here. What a remarkable designer.

Still happy

Super happy, we have lift off

 Another Kangaroo being inflated, maybe it's the Dad, he has boxing gloves like a Dad

 Yes it definitley is a Dad Kangaroo looking at a balloon, too far away to punch.

Dad's leading the way, everyone's safe.

Then we have the Kiwi contender. Mr do-it-yourself painter bloke.  
First time out in public for this guy, completely computer designed.
     Don't know about the droopy beak.
 Maybe that's why he doesn't look as happy as the Aussies. 
It's farewell to all those lovely balloons, destined for some green field far away.

            Is the green one sinking or is it an optical illusion?

Further away until just about out of sight, only the people left, wistfully wishing they were going too.

Creativity quotes of the day
No-body can be uncheered by a balloon, Winnie the Pooh

Imagination is like a lofty building reared to meet the sky - fancy is a balloon that soars at the wind's will, Frank Gelett Burgess
