Hot Air Balloon Ascending
Yesterday morning I stopped in a vacant lot and made images as the Bank of the West balloon prepared for lift off. The wind was pushing the balloons West and maybe North, and after that I went to the Alameda Bridge again. I was the first one there and the sight was amazing.... yet, this was more unique than a couple balloons doing the drop and splash....
I have a 9am meeting @ UNM, so I don't know if I will get any images. There is no time to go 20-miles NE towards the Balloon Park this morning.I will have my camera with me when I walk El Jay to school (it is walk to work day, BTW) Then I take a bus East to the University... I asked the wind spirits to huff and puff (gently) towards UNM.... All I ask for is one image that is worth processing--so I can say I took balloon images each day this week.
