As most of you know at convention this year I was given the gift of a new K.A.P. rig and then the Gomberg's gave me the kite
to lift it with and here's some photos of my first outing at my local field...... :) I may not know what I'm doing but I sure had a
blast and nothing broke some I'm real happy with the whole process and as I do more I will share them with you..... Ben :blue-cool:

Interesting pictures Ben. I especialy like the ones where you can not see the string. Makes you think "how the heck did he take that" not that we don't know of course. However the ones you can see the string in sort of spoil the mystery somehow.

Not that they are not all cool of course.

Didnt notice in the picture of the rig you put up. Is it Radio Controled for pan and tilt?

Hi Ben,

Really good pics for your first time.

I spent my first couple of times getting all sky or all grass :lol:

I was also told to fly on black coloured line as it does not show as much
when in the shot, but have not tried it yet.

Ha! Ben, the first one just made me smile...
it seems that you are communicating with god via line-in messaging.

and the one with everything, the ocean/lighting, the beach, palm trees and bushes
people, kites and buildings..... is such a fluent shot.... this new toy thing seems ready, satisfying and fun.

great perspectives.
love, as if you have never been hurt before.....

Great pictures, Ben, I like the green at the ocean. How about some technical information, camera, KAP rig, Dopero kite?

I took these with my EXP ;) of a SUP (Stand Up Paddleboarder), HQ Hybrid and the setting sun.

Wow talk about getting humble those are great shots please keep them rolling cause I have to see more, as for my K.A.P. rig
it is all pretty standard Brooks stuff with a small canon point and shoot. I did buy a new camera yesterday and it is a canon
50D and so far so good.... Ben :blue-cool: :blue-cool: :blue-cool:
