Bristol Balloon Festival

August 8th, 2008

Last night was the start of the Bris­tol Bal­loon Fes­ti­val. Its based at Ash­ton court ever year and there are bal­loons from all over the world.

We went to the night glow last night. The night glow is where all the bal­loons are teth­ered down, and the bal­loon crew light their bal­loons up in time to music. Every­one “ooohs” and “aaaahs”. Its just a real­ly great atmos­phere. Just when the bal­loons fin­ish doing their fan­cy stuff, a fire­works show sets off and every­one car­rys on “ooohing” and “aaaahing”.
There’s a fair at the fes­ti­val too. I don’t know what it is about fairs, I just don’t like them, but every­one else loved it =)
I just wish I had enough to time to go back there this week­end with my tri­pod, but its just not possible.
Maybe next year…
(I’m sure thats what I said last year…)

I did­n’t get that many pic­tures, but still…Enjoy! =)

This week­end, or more specif­i­cal­ly Sun­day, Me and Jes­si­ca are going to a dear friends engage­ment par­ty, so they’ve asked me to shoot some pic­tures for them. Expect to see them on mon­day if my head does­n’t hurt!! =)
