The Middletown, Ohio Ballon festival(Ohio Challenge) was a cheap and fun event to attend. There were funnel cakes, corn dogs, fried Oreos, classic cars, skydivers, and of course balloons. The balloons were fantastic but I’ll show you those later. What I found more interesting, was what was required in getting those gigantic devices up in the air. It seems the folks shared a great passion for their work and it showed on their faces.

A TISKET, A TASKET…IS THERE CHAMPAIGNE IN YOUR BASKET????
Yes there is indeed. 🙂 Thanks.
Seth, I got to work with a hot air balloon crew once, and it was one of the most exciting experiences of my life! Then I got a ride in the balloon! Fabulous. Everything is silent up there.
Nice. Sounds amazing.
Stellar series! Love the unusual perspective in this set!
(MANY folks focus on the balloons up in the air already… but few focus on the human element like this)
Fantastic, my favourite is ( Seeing red ) just stunning
