We interrupt my current series of posts about Rockport for a special announcement.
Back in 2019, when we attended the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, the city of Albuquerque was running a photo contest. The theme? Zebras – the launch directors who make sure hot air balloons launch safely and successfully at the Balloon Fiesta. I made sure I captured photos of the zebras as I captured other events and submitted after the Balloon Fiesta was over.
In January 2020, I heard that all my photos were selected for a digital display / slideshow at an upcoming exhibit. It was supposed to happen in summer 2020, but COVID. I didn’t hear anything more, until yesterday. I received an email from the city of Albuquerque inviting me to the Grand Opening of the All Black and White exhibit on Thursday, July 29, from 6:30 – 8:00 Mountain time. I can’t go, but the exhibit will be on display through Summer 2022. I am hoping we’ll get a chance to visit Albuquerque before the exhibit is done.
I submitted 5 photos, and all 5 were accepted.
You may recognize Ken, he’s the hot air balloon pilot who graciously allowed me to shadow him on Day 5 of the 2019 Balloon Fiesta. You can also see some video here.
While my photos are not the star of the exhibit, I’m thrilled to be included among the photos in the slideshow at the exhibit. If you get a chance, go see the exhibit! Let me know if you end up going.
