Notes on Kite Aerial Photography: Photo Gallery

My Favorite KAP Images
Sampler No. 1

These sampler pages contain my favorite KAP photographs. What makes an image appealing? Certainly part of an image's intrigue is based on photographic merit. But I also find that associations from the shooting play an important role -- a pleasant hike, a sweet-flying kite, just the right light.

This page has something of a nautical motif. The San Francisco Bay area has a wealth of shoreline and the whole family enjoys water-related activities. The water's edge is often a great place for kite flying -- smooth winds and open spaces. Each of the images below is linked to a larger jpg and has a pointer to its gallery page where additional images from the session are available.
