Melbourne Causeway looking West

by Gary Eugene Howell
(Melbourne, Florida, USA)


Home made rig on a picavet. Rig is static and doesn't move unless the wind blows it. I took 250 pictures of the roadway without catching the bridge. Then the wind swayed the camera just right and I caught this one photo.

Quite a nicely composed shot after all that. The horizon and road form a narrow V, drawing (pointing?) your eye to the bridge. The cloud formation is a bit of a feature at top right. Plus all that perspective of the road...
Imagine how expensive KAP must have been before digital cameras!

"Love the easy to understand step by step instructions, made from next to nothing materials and above all so much fun to fly... cheers Tim for sharing your well thought out pdf kite designs with the whole world.

Very satisfying making your own and watching them get air-born for the first time."

"I decided to run kite making as an elective again on this camp in the past week - so I bought all your e-books, a bunch of materials, and then took a group of 10 high school students through making the kites over 4 days. We built a diamond, a Barn Door, a Delta, and two skew delta kites. Again - every single kite flew."

Very detailed and USEFUL information - thanks for such a great book."

"30+ years ago, I tried making a kite using the 'instructions' in a free kite-safety booklet. What a disappointment for a young boy.

 Your instructions and methods are wonderful. You help the builder to focus on accuracy, without making it hard. Also, you use materials that are durable, yet cheap!"
