    Just a heads-up for the SoCal contingent - The scenic, bayside streets of downtown San Diego will come alive with the 2011 Port of San Diego Big Bay Balloon Parade tomorrow - starting at 10am down on Harbor Drive.

    This is said to be the largest balloon parade in the US - larger than the Macy's Thanksgiving parade.

    Boy that rigging in that ship makes an interesting contrast to the balloon.

    Thanks for the heads-up, Chris. Cannae make due to the installation of a new oven, which is scheduled for today. Great fotie, though!

    Just heading back from this year's parade now. Got some good shots I think

    Shot the 5D2 and 24mm and the 1N and 50mm with Ilford PanF, so should have captured something!
