I spent 2 weeks in Montreal in August with my boyfriend who is heavily into hot air ballooning (he's working on getting his license). So, every year he works at this balloon festival in his town and I went this past year to help as well. These may qualify more as snapshots, because they aren't that great (this was the VERY beginning of my learning photography). I still enjoy some of these though, so I wanted to share them! From my archives: 1. (He's not making any bad gestures, no worries ) 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9.
