This blog wouldn't exist without all the photos that you've seen in previous postings and those to come. Typically I'm too busy with the assembly of the balloon, the launch, getting the chase vehicle ready after launch, driving, etc. that I don't have the time to take photos of the event. So I often rely on fellow crew members, passengers, as well as other Pilots and Crew to provide me with photos.
One who allows me access to using his photographs, including editing is Paul deBerjeois, who is probably the best balloon Photographer that I've come across to date. If you want to check out his work, go to www.ColorBandit.com and www.HotAirPhotos.com, or go to my Links section and click on his logo. With the next blog entry, I start using his photographs. Again, my thanks to Paul for allowing me to use his photographs. Go and check out his work, both ballooning and many other subject matter. His work is for sale, and you can contact him through his website.
