THIS BALLOON HAS SECONDS TO LIVE! Before and after photos of a target balloon’s last moments on a timed course in Glen Rose Texas, organized yesterday by the Cowboy Mounted Shooting Association:


I used a Panasonic Lumix camera with the focus racked out on a 60 frames per second burst mode; the dust and gunpowder inside the event made for lots of haze. (The faux-snapshots and woody-looking background is a slightly modified Shutterstock.com image.) The event was held this weekend at the Somervell County Expo Center, in Glen Rose, about twenty minutes from the Bullets & Bourbon event in December with Glenn Reynolds, Roger L. Simon, Stephen Green, Dana Loesch, Ed Morrissey and Mark Rippetoe. More details about Bullets & Bourbon here.
