Merrill Kite Aerial Photography

My hometown is Merrill, Wisconsin.  At least that is where I grew up.  I don't get back to Merrill very often, but try to stop in if I'm on my way up north for any reason.  Since I started capturing images by lofting a camera into the air with a Kite, I always thought that it would nice to go back and capture the Merrill Courthouse, as it's pretty distinctive.  The conditions were good as I arrived last Friday to launch my kite with south winds.  This is the first time I've used anything but my wide angle lens on the Sony NEX-5, as I was standing quite a ways away.  Here are the results.  Unfortunately, I wasn't able to get any Queenie and Ron's Pizza, as it seems as though it has closed its' doors for good.  Go Bluejays!
