Note: The little black spot to the left of the Hot Air Balloon right in front isn’t a bug it’s actually a person in a little motorized glider thingie. I bet their view was amazing!

    1. I wondered if I’d been dropped, but you know it’s weird asking abut it isn’t it. I hope to see the boys soon it’s been several weeks since we’ve seen them.

      Watching the hot ballooners get ready and then lift off is really a neat experience. I don’t want to go up in one, but they are so cool to see and I daydream about going up and that good enough for me! 😀😂

      1. I’m not sure I’d want to go up in one, but I love seeing them. They are rare around here (not too many open spaces) but we occasionally see them in Central CT.

        I signed up again. If I get the email, I’ll be there. If I don’t, I’ll come looking.

        1. I’ve never liked being near the edge of ledges, or being in or on anything shaky so it’s the basket that freaks me out more than the height, but I am getting to be more afraid of heights the older I get.

  1. There is a space on my bucket list for a hot air balloon ride. Scary but exhilarating! We had a wonderful Balloon Festival in Baton Rouge each year. Once a balloon made an unexpected landing on the street right in front of me! I got photos cuz… back in the day I never left the house without my camera. 😀

  2. Oh I love photos of hot air balloons, they are always so colorful! Well done on your composition, Deborah, you got a whole lot in this shot of the street, including the glider, distant balloons, a mountain! Have you gone on a hot air balloon ride? I have not, but always wanted to in my younger days. 🙂

    1. They are so colorful and just magical, but no, I don’t want to go up in one. I did when I was much younger but not any more. I’m good on the ground. I would love to ride in a glider plane though and do some aerial photography.

      Thank you so much, Donna! ❤😀

  3. Looks like a fun and colorful event. Balloon rallies are always great to photograph. I have a friend that is a hot air balloon pilot so I’ve been up several times and it is always fun and makes for some great photos.
