On August 23, 2003, Michael and I went to the Airport to photograph the balloons which were going up in the Balloon Festival. These balloonists included John Ninomiya and his Cluster Balloon! Read more about Cluster Ballooning here
Due to some fortunate wrangling on my part (telling a friend of ours that i would give a body part to ride in one), I actually got to go UP in a balloon! Yeah, that's ME there in the 4th pic.. and waving from the last one! What a wonderful time i had!
