A balloon envelope is being inflated at the Snowmass Balloon Festival in Snowmass, Colorado.
I haven’t taken pictures just for the sake of taking pictures for a while. The other night I decided to change that. I started out with a candle, trying to get a good ambient shot of my daughter or my wife. Those didn’t come out so well. Then I shot the candle by itself – those did come out. Then I remembered a promotion item we had, a flashing replica ice cube. I grabbed it, turned it so the LED was in a steady on state, and fired away. I like how it came out. Sometimes you need to shoot just for the sake of it.
