This past July 8th to the 11th, my little town of 46,000 people became the hub of entertainment. Not only were there high flying Hot Air Balloons, but there was some awesome entertainment to celebrate the weekend. I don't want to brag... but i will.
Can anyone tell me who this Guy is...
|Tim Edwards of Crash Parallel|
This guy is from a little band called Crash Parallel. They are from Mississauga Ontario, and they are amazing. To say the least. I was able to get some great shots of them playing at Lift-Off, that I found it hard to choose which one to pick. I also o this shot, which is my favorite...
Lately I am obsessed with Black and White photography. Most of you know I have my own little gig on the side that I do. I shoot pictures of everything. But Lift off is always a favorite, where else can a take pictures of bands, and people just having a good time, and totally enjoy the moment. This is a time i remind myself, that 2 years ago at this time, I wouldn't have been able to go to this weekend event, as my lungs wouldn't perit me to do so.
So these guys might not be high on your radar, but I know for fact you can't deny who these guys are...
|I think it's going Raine today....|
|Raine, totally lucky shot. And it's by far my favorite of all time.|
This weekend also features the likes of Lighthouse, and Randy Bachman, bands I didn't get pictures of because of the rain. i had a choice, take pictures in the rain, get sick... or... stay at home and admire Raine from my computer screen. I chose the latter.
But Saturday night, was filled with electricity and excitement when this lady came on stage and made her presence known to a crowd of over 25,000... Who is she you ask, well let's find out...
Anyhow. I have taken up enough of your time. I will show you some balloons from the weekend, and maybe next year, we'll see you out here.
Ciao and enjoy the pictures of the Balloons.
