I think this is my favorite one. Wish I could do things like this with a camera.

More Kite Aerial Photos, much better I think.

I saw this and remembered a kite photography post I made, thinking it was a few months ago, but it was two years ago. All amazing stuff from these kite photographer guys.

Don't forget to check out the other sets (there are 8) - truly amazing stuff. I've been a few of those places, too, so it was nice to reminesce...

Apparently, there's an obligatory shot for all kite photographers.

Kite photography and California go back a ways. "San Francisco in Ruins" was taken in 1906 by George Lawrence, who used a kite rig of his own design to capture an image of the city as it looked just after the earthquake.

For "pointless" read "delightfully free of agenda". I was just over excited when I posted.

The trees have points, the shadows have points, even the amusement park ride at Santa Cruz appears to have a point (even if it's only implied). If everything on this site has a point, this post must have one too.

apologies to harry and oblio, and thank you marvin for reminding us what metafilter is all about

Cool stuff. If only I weren't the world's worst kite-flyer...
