Photo Diary of the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta 2017

This year at the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta, I complained to a friend that I wish I had a better camera. The magic of the balloons was just so hard to capture with my phone camera. My wish was immediately answered as he pointed me towards to Canon tent. Canon loans out cameras for a couple hours, free of charge at the Balloon Fiesta! I spent the rest of the morning geeking out over balloons and the Canon EOS M10 that I borrowed.
