Not very much to shoot around here. When all else fails, I can always go back and look at photos from the Balloon Fiesta, in Albuquirqui Albaquerque Albiquerquy Albuquerque.

I'm sure you are all going to be tired of balloon photos by the time this week is through.

Yup... More balloons! I'm still here in Albakurquee, freezing my butt off. Seems a cold front came through yesterday. A couple days ago it was 80 degrees. This morning when I got up to watch the balloons, it was 38 degrees... Brrrrrrrrrrrrr...

Here's one from this morning at the balloon festival. Unfortunately this morning sucked for shooting the festival. It was the second morning for the funky shape rodeo, I was really looking forward to it. Problem #1 is the same problem I have every day here. I wish that they didn't start launching them at 7:00 AM. The sun rises pretty late this time of year, and to make it worse... Much worse, there are big mountains to the east of here. The sun doesn't come up over the top of those mountains until 7:30, which means that the entire balloon field is completely in shadow until 7:30. So, basically, everything I shoot before that is complete crap! It's OK on the mass ascension days. There are so many balloons that they keep launching until 9:00. Unfortunately today, they were pretty much done launching at 7:29. Problem #2... Normally the wind blows predominantly south here. Today there was a strong, strange wind blowing kind of East, West, North! So by the time I had any damn sunlight they had all totally scattered in every different direction except where I was standing, which was of course south! So I got absolutely no photos of the funky shapes.

I'm getting this feeling of Deja-Vu. I feel like I've been here before. It's hard to believe it has been a whole year, but just over a year ago I started this job, and this was my first major stop. The Albuquirky Balloon Fiesta! So, now... One year later, I have come full circle, with a complete loop of Arizona, Utah, California (just a little piece of California), and Colorado, and after a really long drive yesterday, I'm BACK! ...Albiquerque... The largest balloon festival in the world. Over a thousand balloons. It is an absolutely amazing sight to see.
