Hot Air Balloons

Filed under: Photography,Places — Singari Vijay @ 11:41 am

For me it looks like there is a relation between hot air ballooons and photography. The spectacular colors of balloons and the film’s ability to capture all those brilliant colors seem like made for each other.

First time I ever saw a hot air balloon in person was in Texas. We were in Houston, Texas at that time and there was NASA Open House and ‘Ballunar Festival’. It was in August 2001. I happened to capture some of those balloons on film.

The picture I liked most... Clear blue sky and a colorful balloon!

  3. Aparna,

    Thanks for your comments and I’m glad you liked the photos of the recipes. If you liked the photos, it is because how they were prepared and presented. Of course, camera tries to capture the scene close to reality. The camera we used for food photography is Nikon D70s.
