3 Yellow Balloons

Looking at the Boston Marathon photo with the guy in shredded clothes, I noticed in the original photos (not the zoomed in ones) there are 3 yellow balloons that look like they are tied to a post at Ground Zero #1 (you can see them clearly in pics #2, 3, & 4). Also, in pic #7, you can see similar yellow balloons across the street tied to the grandstand:

This video shows bomb #1 going off right at those balloons and they look like they break away as a result of the effect of the blast (see 0:10 of the video):

It does not appear there are any other yellow balloons in that area.

Then there is this pic, taken 48 minutes before blast #1 at 2:01PM (we can stamp the time by the race clock), and there are no yellow balloons anywhere:

Interesting that those yellow balloons just happen to mark Ground Zero #1, and they must have been placed there within 48 minutes of the blast.

What time did the 2 suspects arrive on the scene again?

*** UPDATE: Thanks to Bill Gillingham for pointing out that the video footage of the two bombers walking along the sidewalk ALSO includes a woman just in front of the older brother and she is carrying THREE YELLOW BALLOONS. In addition, her face is BLURRED OUT. The only two areas of that video where there is any blurring is the man in the doorway as they walk away from the camera, and the woman walking in front of the two brothers while she carries 3 yellow balloons.

Also note: Here is a video of the winner of the Boston Marathon. Go to about 4:00 of the video as he heads for the homestretch and the finish line. Notice there are no yellow balloons anywhere along the final stretch or the finish line.

In the ninth image down in this video image series, Is that the Cowboy hat and hand flag guy on the ground behind the black metal fence adjacent to the two rectangular brown tables with the big black duffel bag?

You can see the chubby black

You can see the chubby black girl with the bright turquoise jacket in the 3rd high-res frame taken from the balcony holding her ear.

If anything, it gives us a good time frame of reference.

Doesn't mean anything to me...

... but I did notice that the still photos of the two suspects also showed a woman walking with some yellow balloons. (I took note of it because the balloons disturbed me in the videos - 'Was a kid just holding those?')

But, the photos of the guys walking on the sidewalk, they are followed or led by a woman with balloons.

at 1:35 in the video (if I am doing it correctly!):

*** HOLY SH*T !!! ***

I had not noticed that before, but re-watching that video, there is a woman walking in front of the older brother and she is carrying THREE YELLOW BALLOONS and HER FACE IS BLURRED!!!

Only two areas of that video are blurred out -- the man in the doorway and the woman with the 3 yellow balloons!!!

Wow. This could be something.

Not too much to it... Ground

Not too much to it...

Ground zero is also the finishing line. You put up balloons too early there is a chance they might burst so that probably explains the timing.

Is that all you were asking?

If it's just because of the finish line ...

... then why weren't they there earlier?

Did you even read my post?

Did you even read my post? You put them later so someone doesn't burst them before the runners reach the finish line.

Dude ...

... runners had been crossing the finish line THREE HOURS before the two bombs went off.

Here is a video of the WINNER of the Boston Marathon (crosses the finish line around 4:10 of the video).

Guess what?

NO YELLOW BALLOONS.

So, they waited 3 hours for some people at the tail end of the race to put up balloons?

Yeah, suuure ...

Got nothing to do with the woman who's face is BLURRED out as she carries 3 yellow balloons, walking in front of the TWO BOMBERS.

Yeah, suuure ...

The balloons are put up for

The balloons are put up for photos. In daytime events I've had people release balloons at the very end so photographers can get some good photos. They are there for the same purpose here-show, for the end of the marathon.

Where does the lady fit into your crazy conspiracy?

Knock off the stupid ad hominems ...

... if you want a discussion.

I don't really to be

I don't really to be honest...I'll refer you to my 4 year old niece. She absolutely loves balloons.

Yellow is the colour of the Shirvan Emirate!! Its PROOF I tell you!

If it was just balloons to tell a runner where to find his or her friends, then they'd be RAINBOW coloured, so as not to discriminate against anyone who might be of a different race, faith, or sexual orientation.
