The reverse side has also its reverse side

Each year, the city of London holds the Mayor's Festival along the Thames River.

So there I was, driving to work one morning a couple of weeks ago, and I came around a curve to find a hot air balloon no more than 40 feet above the highway. I snatched up my handy dandy little point and shoot, steered the car with my knees (don't try that at home, youngsters) and snapped off a series of shots. The balloon appeared to land about 100 yards on the other side of the highway to right of the photo. (click on the thumbnail to better see the design on the balloon) Near Terrebonne, Oregon; August, 2009.
