Release the kite Flying a kite is fun… I think! I’ve never tried, have you? I see flying kites almost every day, even though there’s no wind! How is that possible? I want one! On another note; I’ve made a Haiti album on Flickr 😀 Share this:FacebookPinterestTumblrTwitterEmailLike this:Like Loading... Related 22 thoughts on “Release the kite” Add yours Yes, I flied a kite. But no wind, no fun. Don’t know how they do it without wind in Haiti!! Reply My theory is that the wind is stronger 5-6 meters above the ground.. ? Caroline & I were witching a little girl with her mom and a kite, and we thought: That’s never going to work! There’s no wind! But 5 minutes later, it was flying 😮 Reply wow, that is great. make sure you do try it. its feels very liberating. Reply What is no wind for us is at least 7-10 mph after a certain height. The make/paper of the kite too is important, lighter the better on a no-wind day. Lovely pictures, Ksenia! Reply oh flying a kite reminds me of my childhood, me and my cousins did that very often during fall 🙂 now i want one too, haha! and i know a photographer who takes photos from the air with a kite, would be fun to try! Reply I am enjoying following your remarkable blog!! Thank you… Reply Neat photos! These remind of the book “The Kite Runner.” Wrong country, of course, but still a parallel nonetheless. Reply I love flying kites. In March when the wind blows high in the sky, I find is the best time to try. Reply I’ve flown a kite! But I suck at it… They’re so beautiful to watch though! =) Reply this reminds me of the “kite runner”. have you read the book? have you seen the movie version? Reply No, I’ve heard a lot about it though.. And I’ve heard that it’s sad… and I try to stay away from sad things because you stumble upon them eventually wether you want to or not…. Reply it’s a sad story alright, but it’s also a story of redemption. it leaves you feeling good after reading it. I used to try to fly kites when I was young but I always unsuccessful. Lovely photos. Reply We often tried but rarely succeeded. It was fun putting together kite kits though and going through the rag bag for material to make a tail. Reply loved the captures! here we have a god named Vishwakarma, and the day of his worship, everyone flies kites, and the sky is full of them…keep them coming 🙂 Reply The kite flier; predecessor to the pilot. Reply haha! of course you’d think of it this way! Reply Flying a kite is such a pleasant way to go for a stroll on the beach instead of just baking lying down in the sun! Reply Beautiful images! I LOVE all those fantastic vibrant colors – so nice! I remember I tried constructing kites from all kinds of different things (none of which seem very aerodynamic now that I look back on it) when I was growing up. Needless to say it never really worked. Lots of fun, though! 🙂 Reply wow! constructing kites even… even if it didn’t work, I admir you for trying, creative you! 😀 Reply I miss flying kites by the beach Reply Beautiful and colorful. Specially liked the color temperature of the pics. 🙂 Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
