So this post has been sitting in my draft file for awhile…I’m not sure why, I guess I like getting the PEOPLE photos out to you as soon as possible (don’t laugh, I know it takes awhile sometimes). This was an exciting experience that I had never really planned on happening. (I have been sky-diving twice, why would I need to go up in a hot-air balloon?) But when the Director of Marketing for SIGA asked me to document their slot-machine balloon in the air, I was suddenly enthralled. I got to photograph it from the inside-out. The ride itself was both more exhilarating and relaxing than I could have imagined.
