Bye Kiteman!!!

Yesterday was a glorious day for Kite Aerial Photography in Paddock Lake, Wisconsin. The temperature was in the upper 70's, and the wind out of the WSW at around 16 MPH. I had been waiting for a good day to come back an re-capture some softball games from the air, and today the girls who were only about 6 or 7 years old were playing at Sorensen Fields off Hwy 83. As soon as I launched, I had a group of spectators wondering what I was doing. Some of the kids who came over were in total awe that you could take pictures from the sky by attaching the camera to a kite string. I brought the camera down and showed them a few pictures. I let one of the girls hold the spool, and the boys were pretty fascinated by the remote control system. It was fun to share my hobby with the kids and I think that they were excited about being able to see themselves from the air. I gave them each one of my cards so that could see the images on the internet. When I was leaving the parking lot, one of the kids screamed out, "Bye Kiteman!" That put a smile on my face for the rest of the evening knowing that I inspired a few young minds with a new perspective on kite flying and photography.
