It's A Bird - It's A Plane- No It's A Blimp

Early yesterday evening I was laying in bed watching some television when something caught my eye that was outside of our bedroom sliding windows. There was a fairly decent sized white blimp floating up in the sky. I scurried downstairs to grab my new Sony camera so that I could take a couple of photos and a video of this blimp slowly moving across the sky. In my excitement to get outside and take the photos and video, I forgot something important. After taking the photos and video and seeing the blimp leave the area, I looked down at the camera and noticed that the lens was all fogged up. We keep this camera in a case in our first floor computer room.It is fairly cool down there. At least compared to the heat and humidity that is outside. I did not even think about the change in temperature and the effect that would have on the glass camera lens. Although the photos and video are far from perfect, they are much better than what I thought they would be, especially with all of the condensation on the lens. I will have to be more careful next time.

If you look real close you can see the little wheels that are underneath the blimp and a small flag in the back. There is also a long tethering rope hanging down from the front of the blimp. You can click on each photo to enlarge them.
I decided to play with the photo a bit. I went into my Corel Paint Shop Pro and changed a few aspects of each photo.
If you enlarge the photo below, you should be able to see the long tether line hanging down from the front of the blimp.


If you look closely you will be able to see the flag blowing on the back end of this blimp.
