Building and flying kites, attending kite festivals... Isn't live wonderfull?

While I'm at it...

Finally, finally I'm blogging, so lets keep going!

Ofcourse Pucca and Garu weren't my first kites. Although they were my first "experimental" kites. As in no traditional kite shape or building plan. They are my invention and they love showing this by flying... eh, enthousiastically energetic :-/. Let's just say they need a watchfull eye at all times.

My fist attempt at a Fuga kite


Presenting: Garu!!!

As promised by Aldo a couple of days ago; the presentation of Garu "the kite". Pucca is finally reunited with her beloved. He usually isn't to happy when this happens but we are!

Here are Garu and Pucca, together at last :-) Garu isn't completely finished in this picture and Pucca isn't wearing all of her sticks. But who cares!


Oostende Kite Festival 2004 panoramas

After attending a couple of kite festivals for a couple of years, last year Tessa and I were officially invited to attend the Oostende Kite Festival 2004. That was our first invitation, based on how some of our kites looked... We had a great time!

Panoramic kite photography

Frank sent me an email with a link to Scott Haefner's kite born panoramic images. That must mean Scot's site made it to the blogosphere once more. I thought this would make a good first entry for the kite topic...

The first kite panoramas I saw are by Philippe Hurbain. Scott's panoramas may look better (lower position, more interesting locations), but Philo really is a genius. Apart from kiteborn panoramas he also invented the virtual tripod or 'Philopod', which I use exclusively for my panoramic photography.
