Photographer's Note

the first time I saw the balloon festival in chateau d'oex, and also one of the first shots using DSLR camera (borrowed) :).

The balloons so attractive, this one is replica of Vincent Van Gogh, I think inspired from his painting "self portrait with grey felt hat" . At first I wanted to give the title, on the picture, ".. and I have been afraid I should not be able to sleep " ... taken from one of his letters to brother Theo, made in arles. Van Gogh, was known as a very light sleeper and had often insomnia. so ironic, seeing his balloon with his eyes wide open, as if he has troubling of sleep, surrounded by lilliputs :).

never been I absent to this festival since then, until this year... this festival will end tomorrow. And I could not attend it, tordu, twisted on my ankle. :(( fufufu... maybe next time..

hope you have great week end :)
