The Most Photographed Event In The World - Albuquerque, NM

Do you know where we are? I'll give you a hint. I grew up in this town. You might see bumblebees...

there might be cows...

children will watch in awe...

The Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta is often called "The Most Photographed Event In the World." My photos do this breathtaking event no justice at all, but you just can't resist snapping picture after picture after picture.

There is nothing quite like waking up hours before dawn, stumbling onto the dark and grassy field with a cup of hot coffee in your cold hands; then watching the balloons begin to fill in a fantastic assortment of colors and shapes. My brother and his wife traveled from Georgia to be here with us for the event.

Everywhere you look, there are new shapes to see.

I'll have a new recipe for you on Monday. I'm taking the next few days off to play with my family. Have a blessed weekend!


  1. I can see that lift-off would be an amazing sight.

  2. We would always go the balloon festival in Colorado. These are such beautiful pictures. Wish I could go!

  3. The Forest Park Balloon Race in St.Louis is nice. Limit 70 balloons, they have turned away increases for Safety.

  4. How beautiful! Glad you are having a great time.

  5. Incredible! Have a wonderful relaxing time...hope you get to go up in one of those gorgeous balloons!

  6. Oh, so jealous! I really want to go that event one day. I'll be sure to harass you. Yanno, so you can bring us a picnic! :P

  7. I've ALWAYS wanted to see this!! I bet it's just amazing :)
