Hot Air Balloon Fiesta, Albuquerque, New Mexico 2010

The winds have welcomed you with softness

The sun has blessed you with it’s warm hands

You have flown so high and so well

That God has joined you in laughter

and sent you gently back into the loving arms of mother earth.

The above blessing often comes with a champagne toast after a flight in a hot air balloon. I’d aways wanted to see the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta and finally got to see it last October. It is a great event full of fun and an air of excitement as more than 600 balloons take off while the sun rises above the Sandia Mountains.

Here is a link to more photos on my website.

I posted a little series of pics to Flickr recently and they are getting a surprising amount of traffic. The pictures are a short series I took while out at Long Beach, Washington while checking out the International Kite Flying Contest / Festival.  This old guy had at least one kite attached to his belt and another one or two in his hands.  He was totally into what he was doing.
