SYW Follow up – Hot Air Balloon

My day just became a lot more joyful and optimistic.  About a minute after I hit publish on my Share Your World post this morning, Chris said there is a hot air balloon in the sky and it was the closest she had ever seen one.  So obviously, I grabbed my camera and took a few photos.

What was so fun about this was my answer to the 4th question of SYW was “Even though last week was not the best for me, I know deep down inside all is well and my life will return to my happy easy going place.  I have a way of turning what appears to be bad I’ll turn it into good.  I don’t stay down long.  That part of me just inspires to keep going, because good things and time is just around the bend or even in the next minute.”

  1. I have ALWAYS wanted to go up in one. There was one at our local fairground a couple of years ago, but exactly when I got to the front of the line, they had to close down. Not enough hot air. Even though I offered to blow furiously into the balloon, I didn’t go up (sigh). There is a travel company (European) where you drift in hot air balloons all over the continent. If I got fabulously rich somehow, I’d do that and the European river boat cruising — and one long trip through Alaska. Okay, just one more — a photography safari in Kenya … where presumably they still have some animals to photograph. Just dream.

    Your second shot is the stuff that dreams are made of!


  2. What a wonderful treat! I’ve never been in one and I like it that way, but it is fun to catch a glimpse of one. I used to see balloons when I lived on the west coast. Not where I live now. Anyway, lovely photos.


  3. Great attitude to have Cee – I firmly believe that the more opportunity you give for good things to ‘happen’ the more they happen to you! ( Same for the negative also!)

    Lovely shots. 🙂 Perth is about 60 miles from Northam which is known for it’s ideal ballooning conditions, Last year a Russian explorer in his 70’s set the world record for solo navigation around the world in a hot air balloon and i managed to catch a very long distance shot of him as he passed over our city just before he set the record. 🙂
