A Bike, A Park, A Kid, A Dog and A Kite on a Windy Day

The Dog Became Invisible When I Pressed The Shutter Button

That's a recipe for fun right there. It's cheap, it's healthy, it's a good experience. Although that kite looks like it might carry that kid away in this wind. Which would also be an experience. 15mph headwind with gusts of 25. That's kite weather, and an extra special workout on your commute home. Get up. Go ride.


  1. I've been watching some kids and their parents fly kites at various parks around here.
    Been thinking of trying to make a box kite.
    Can't wrap my head around the flyability of the box design.

  2. I just learned from wikipedia that most of the kite altitude records are held by hi-tech box kites. Weird.

  3. Oh boy, I wish you hadn't told me that.
    Now I feel compelled.

  4. meli the wind was roaring that day, and that kite really ripped through the air when he let it go.
