Hot Air Balloon Photo, Sno-Bird, posted 2012-08-30

Sno-Bird AKA Waddles – Even the hot air balloons are getting into photography.  This balloon has gone through a couple of evolutions as can be noted by the multiple names but in its 2010 iteration it was into photography.  Instead of a 35 mm camera, this camera would probably fall somewhere between 35 inches and 35 feet — just guessing I would say its probably about 10 feet across the film plane.

As I post this photo, I also wanted to share a link that I included on my Facebook page a couple of days ago that provided some “useful” information about photographers, especially wildlife photographers (http://danbaileyphoto.com/blog/behavior-and-migration-habits-of-the-wildlife-photographer/).  Much the same could be said about photographers at a ballooning event except the lenses used are usually much smaller.
