    Oh, is it? So here it goes: It was at the San Juan festival, in Cieneguilla. Some kids tried to launch a hot-air-balloon, but it caught fire and was swept away by the wind...

    oh yeah, I know, but sometimes it's easier to just go along

    Yeah, I agree with Esso. This picture by Jed Dore is a nice example of one that's better without a story.
    Your shot is actually beautiful with or without the story.

    This would fit under 'Danger'. It is an amazing capture. I admit I like to find out the end of the story. Knowing noone was hurt is good. Bet it scared the 'bejesus' out of those kids.
