Flying Fantasy Octopus Balloon Sea Creatures - Bangkok, Thailand - Daily Travel Photos
(Bangkok, Thailand)
f/1.7 || 1/60s || @20mm || ISO400 || DMC-GF1 || Lens n/a Embed Code

Flying sea creatures float around at the Paragon Mall, part of a performance entitled "Flying Fantasy."

These sea anemone-like creatures were some of the more cleverly designed balloons during the performance. Having been filled with helium, the creatures naturally rise but when the tethered human operator yanks the balloon down, the arms/tentacles stretch out in all directions. See more photos from the performance, yesterday

Octopus Lobster Flying Fantasy Balloons Fight - Bangkok, Thailand - Daily Travel Photos

Two over-sized balloon sea creatures, an octopus and a floating lobster battle.

A continuation of yesterday's epic battle in which a floating snake was dealt a death blow by this octopus. Now a lobster swoops in to avenge the snake's death, making easy work to deflate the octopus.

Please excuse the blurriness of this photo. I've borrowed a loner camera from Mr. Veo El Mundo, a fellow traveler/photographer/blogger. The camera is a small and easily portable Panasonic GF-1 which I'm learning to get a handle on these days.
