It was the balloon fiesta this week..... and for another year I wasn't part of the festivities, which breaks my heart.
Ballooning is still the only thing I jump out of bed for at 5, eagerly.
Why do I let these things which I consider a passion, and yet I manage to let them slide on by.
It's sad and a waste.
So - how do I make life fit around the things which make me smile, grin, laugh out loud and better than that - mixing with the people who have a bounce in their step!!
I need more of that.

I can't take any credit for this great shot. Katie Woo woo took it on my camera while we were playing the "Final" game in our Christmas golf tournament.
It was hilarious with so many balls ending up in the garden.
And yes, that is Israel that Tessa has firmly attached to her.

Alas.... while I took the picture the swing was empty - but as I walked over to enjoy it, some kids arrived and were quick to jump on.
I thought it looked like the most blissful place to spend some time.

What a day!
I went and met up with a friend from High School who I haven't seen since '92. I know.... how many years is that?! Thanks to the wonder of facebook we've been back in touch. She mentioned that they were going for a balloon ride for their 10th anniversary, so I asked if I could come and take photos. :)
It was gorgeous!!
I haven't been around a balloon in so long. How I miss it!
The pilot even rocognised me, which was a bit bizarre. Very good memory.
So, I snapped away, and hopefully she is happy with what I managed to grab.
It was all in an effort to begin my road into portrait photography, and just capturing the moment. We'll see where this journey leads me.
Fun stuff though!
