I was not an official photographer at this event and am not a member of the club that photographed it. I attended as a guest both because the lanterns sounded pretty and because I wanted to support the cause as it affects me personally.

I've never photographed anything like this before and wasn't sure about my settings and had little time to fiddle when I had to deal with my own family and our defective balloon. I managed to get some decent shots, though, and wanted to share them.

Feel free to download photos for your own personal use. I apologize for the obnoxious watermark; I was pushed into it by someone trying to take credit for my work this evening. :( If you need an un-watermarked photo for printing, please contact me.
