Synchronicity Part II

In a previous post, I told the story of fulfilling my dream of getting to ride in a hot air balloon at the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta.  I used a large number of photos that I took with my cell phone.  However, I took an even larger number of photos with my real camera.  So, for those of you who just can’t get enough photos of these amazingly beautiful balloons, here are some of those photos!

(The order got completely jumbled in the upload, so get the story from the other post and just enjoy the random assortment of photos here!)

They apparently start each morning with one balloon raising the American flag and a playing of the National Anthem.

One thought on “Synchronicity Part II

  1. ALL balloons are beautiful! I enjoy watching the ones here for 4th of July, and I have seen the balloons for Kentucky Derby activities in Louisville. There are probably several ReMax balloons, but that’s one of the ones always here for 4th of July. I loved the Smokey the Bear balloon! And many others……….
