2009 Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta Photos


I did not attend this year’s Albuquerque Balloon Fiasco, er… I mean Fiesta. I don’t need to because The Albuquerque Convention and Visitors Bureau thinks it the most photographed event in the world.

As of this post using, Flickr as a gauge, there are 7,178 photos or videos taken between 10/03/2009 and 10/18/2009. Is there another event which has more photos on Flickr?


2002 Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta

Photos taken from the 2002 Balloon Fiesta. I have to say that I’m pretty surprised at how many photos came out as well as they did, especially the night ones. The Photoshot S100 I used has almost no manual controls so It is very difficult to get good pictures at night. Not to say that I didn’t have plenty of blurry or underexposed photos.
