Balloons in all shapes and sizes - 20130309
Image by MomentsForZen
"Taitung" is a county in the southeast of Taiwan. Apparently, this balloon, sponsored by the county government, was getting ready for its maiden international flight. I didn't see it lift-off today (9-March-2013), but the news reports suggested that it remained tethered on the ground, making its first flight 3 days later (13-March-2013). See the internet links below for further details.
In the background, still tethered on the gound, you can see the "Mister Bup" turtle-shaped balloon from Belgium.
The Darth Vader balloon, also from Belgium was airborne - visible near the left edge.
The photograph was taken on the lawns in front of Old Parliament House. The Treasury Building and the top of the Black Mountain Tower can be seen in the background.
