The burgeoning population of the tiny planet led many to devise and build elaborately decorated balloons that lifted them away, in search of more hospitable regions. Those who remained grounded could merely watch as they drifted out of sight. Polar coordinate distortion of a photograph I took at the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, 2013.
Gary Holmes, photographer: I am an opportunist photographer of nature, landscapes, abstract, and other found objects of interest. I prefer to capture the spontaneity of things and events as they are occurring, and rarely photograph staged subjects other than portraits. Although I have been a photographer for decades, I have only been posting them for others to see since about September 2012. Although I will continue to post on 500px, I have begun to focus upon my site (gary-holmes.artistwebsites.com) on Fine Art America, which offers a wider range of printing and mounting options not currently available on 500px.
