Going Ballooney

My theme this month seems to be all about flight.

The 14th Hot Air Balloon Fiesta, better known as "the weekend of everything that flies", wowed the audience as hot air balloons of various colors, shapes and designs lifted into the air and floated off to wherever (nobody knows?).

How many people does it take to inflate a balloon? a panoramic shot

The flag jump headed by the Armed Forces of the Philippines

Stacked skydivers as they descend from an altitude of 5,000 feet. My aunt, who is also a skydiver herself, headed the skydiving committee. Upon touching down on the ground, each skydiver would give out a Skydi-bear (little stuffed bear in diving gear) to some random person in the crowd.

Look, it's a piece of ham! It's a marshmallow! It's a can of soda! It's..... ???

These beautiful photographs were taken by none other than my Uncle, who just loves his Nikon D80!

Wow!! Great photos, I like the one of your aunt. That's so cool. Have you ever gone skydiving? Was there a Remax balloon?
