I took these photos up against the mosh rail like a total fanboi, unashamedly so. Check out the Lock It video to remind yourself why

Every year there is a Balloon Festival and until this year I stayed in bed… what the hell was I thinking. Well this year I go up early and went to launch sites and hills over looking landing sites, took Catie out to see them, generally got really involved.
Perhaps it was because we went up in a balloon on the Gold Coast for Libby’s 40th, maybe because I’ve turned into one of those “camera people” I won’t say Photographer because I’ve got a LONG WAY to go before I’m willing to say anything other than “Happy Snapper” but I’m having fun with it and I get out and about which is cool too.
Oi get off, we just built that
Wow that’s close

Yesterday I spoke about the “Joy” of taking photographs and it was reinforced today too
This is Hillary the event organiser and Professional Photographer look at her expression … See that’s what I mean.
Might have learned that Macro Tubes are great for in studio but hard to perfect outside with the wind moving the subject.
I wonder what else I will discover going to a few more of these I’ll definitely find out, should have been going to these all along
Anyway these are the “Best” of the ones I took today…
A few weeks ago I took my Daughter to the opening of Floriade the Spring Flower Festival here in Canberra.
I took a few photos of people and zillions of flowers but I noticed something about the people who were taking photographs…
They were Smiling which got me thinking how many other photographers have the same look?
So today when were at Floriade again I started shooting shooters. Here is what I saw…
I guess the reason we shoot is because it is really quite enjoyable, well I think it is anyway.
