HA! Nice timing.
It looks as if their "star" balloon has suffered stage-fright, and they're trying to stop it from taking off! :lol:

As you probably could guess from my other work, I try to select a single image as "the" image for whatever it is I'm doing. I get confused when I fail to center my decision making. In this instance, I liked each of the selected shots for completely different reasons and could not choose.

This one is inflation. They're trying to stop it from getting over-eager and speeding down Hollywood Boulevard sideways dragging the basket. The amazing thing to me was the amount of open flame they shoot off into a fabric shell. The noise was impressive as well.

Um, is it supposed to be slanted like that or did something go wrong? Balloon design looks phenomenal though

That's how you fill it with hot air for the "first" time. Without any air in it, the balloon lies flat on the ground. So this is an in-between moment.

Ah that's right, it's been a long time since I've seen a hot air balloon go up. I forgot that colder air was trapped inside and you have to blow it out first. Thanks for clarifying.

It starts with no air at all, as this one did.

Right, I remember studying this a long time ago in my high school days. Gotta love physics. Thanks for clarifying.
