Hot Air Balloon: Re/Max Struts Its Stuff In Tucson, AZ!

ReMax Balloon in Tucson AZ

Always, always carry a camera!  It's my mantra, and it's served me well in the past two years!  I was driving to work, and saw the Re/Max balloon over 22nd Street in Tucson, near "A" Mountain.

I found the nearest parking lot, jumped out and nearly got run over.  Never mind; I got the shots!

ReMax Balloon over "A" Mountain in Tucson, AZ

The "A" on Signal Hill, also known as "A" Mountain, is for the University of Arizona.  It makes for a great Re/Max photo, doesn't it?

I'm wonder if that's Dan Grammar, Active Rain Re/Max agent, up in the balloon?!

We owned a Remax franchise in the past and had the balloon come visit us-it was a great crowd attractor. Unfortunately, the wind was too high that day so noone could go for a ride.

I'm constantly amazed at the skill with which you "frame" your photos with artistic conformation. 

You're a true artist.

Mike, my Wife worked for ReMax a while back. Her office had an open house for a new subdivision she was selling and they brought in the ReMax Balloon. It brought in a lot of people for the open house. I agree with Lenn, good composition on the photos.

Mike - a great photo - I would not want to have to pay those fees that are associated with any of those large firms -

Fees?  Somebody has to pay for the balloon!  :)


Nope!  Just a lowly loan officer.
