Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade NYC 2010 – Balloon Inflation

There is an annual tradition in New York City.  The night before the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, New Yorkers brave the cold night to watch the inflation of the balloons near the American Museum of Natural History.  It is a rare opportunity to see the balloons up close and see how massive they truly are.

By the way, the above stills were taken with the new Sigma 17-50mm F/2.8 EX DC OS HSM. It combines a wide-angle zoom with a full f/2.8, Image Stabilization and two fluorite elements to produce sharp images in a convenient light-weight lens. It is available in mounts for Canon, Nikon, Sigma, Sony/Maxxum, and Pentax for $669.
