Preakness Balloon Launch | Baltimore Photographer

Me and the 'rents went to witness - for the FIRST TIME EVER - the (wait for it) LAUNCH OF THE PREAKNESS BALLOONS (balloons...balloons...balloons...)!! 

However, we didn't have a launch. No bueno, I know!

The flight of hot air balloons have finicky conditions and the 3-4 miles per hour we were experiencing were not in our favor. That's ok! Me padre' and I snapped a roll or so of images (he shoots slides and Pentax) but I haven't seen his yet.

These are a handful of my favorites from those rolls. As a rule of thumb, I try not to edit my images but prefer to get them right in-camera. I will say that I cropped some of the balloon images to squares but that's about it :)
