Hot Air Balloons are long tubes of lite weight material that are inflated by massive flaming lighters that shoot hot gas into them. These guys are attaching the basket. I was hooked on Balloon Festival many years ago, so we just had to go to Lakeland, Florida for the Up Up and Away Florida Hot Air Balloon Festival last weekend. It was a lovely day and the wind speed was perfect (always an issue with hot air balloons). For photographers, hot air balloons are just made for us. There are also a few photos for sale on my page from Albuquerque, which is the mother of all festivals. There is a short video/slide show at my Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/FloridaTraveler1/.

The article was published with those very amateur photos. In time, I bought an Olympus OMD-EM5, a great camera for nature and travel photographers and discovered that I enjoyed telling stories with pictures more than I did with words. The last twenty year have been an incredibly exciting time as resources for photographers have exploded. I have been lucky enough to have some great teachers along the way...
