Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta 1987
by Tadd Johnson
Ninth in the series by Tadd Johnson. As a native of Albuquerque who watched the Fiesta grow from a few balloons to an event of international stature, Johnson wanted to portray the event from the local point of view. His "triptych" (three-paneled image) shows how his neighbors respond when the balloons start flying. His marvelously friendly people climb a grassy hill and gaze upwards toting everything from children to binoculars as they chase the colorful orbs overhead.
