Jude’s Photography

Years ago, before the digital age, I spent a lot of time with my film camera, but when I started writing, I gave it up. In 2015, when I started seriously traveling, I took photos with a little point-and-shoot camera.Β  But some of them were blurry, some were too dark, some too light. I really enjoyed looking at my pictures and posting them on Facebook.

For my second world cruise, I bought a DSLR camera, a Nikon Df, but it was so big and heavy that I was tempted to go back to a pocket version. Two years ago, I bought a mirrorless Fujifilm, and my love of photography, with all its complications, was renewed.

I took this from my balloon.  It's the other half of our group floating up over the plain. 

Since I am 5' tall, I was concerned about how to get into the basket.  The basket was divided into sections, like those holders for silverware for picnics. They put the big basket on its side, and we slid into it, lying on our backs.  We were hooked onto it so we were safe.  There were 3 of us in each section.  It's good that we are friends as we were very close.

They fired up the balloon, the basket set upright, and we could stand up.  It was so close that we had to take turns moving from one leg to another. 

It sounds uncomfortable but it wasn't.  I was with Ron and Carol, who I adore, and we laughed for the full hour we were aloft.  So quiet, so peaceful. Jude
