I flew a kite today…

Multi Kites

The air was filled with things that fly!

After a busy morning that involved lots of reading, I headed over to Templehof – once an airport, today a park.

Bat Kite

A very cool flying bat!

It’s legacy as an airport was fitting today: I went to Templehof to fly a kite with my SA friends.

Dragon Kite

My favorite kite was this Dragon Kite.

When they first told me about it, I thought that there would be a handful of people and that it would make for pretty photography.

Colorful Kite

The weather was perfect for kite flying: quite windy!

In reality, there were at least 100 different kites in the air and photographing kites is really difficult since the buggers keep (pardon the pun) flying about.

Red Kite

The traditional shape I remember from my childhood.

After snapping a few photos (the green kite belongs to my SA friends), they insisted that I have a go at it – and with my first try, I did much better than I expected, probably lasting two or three minutes. My next few attempts were closer to what I expected in the first place: rapid nose dives right into the ground.

Flying at Templehof

My SA Friends’ kite is this pretty green one.

Look! I’m flying a kite! And it’s in the air!
