Hi Mel,

That image captures the essence of what I envisaged 'way back when' the idea of the grid first came to mind in 1993. The organisation of the 'plane' of the fliers and the 'plane' of the kites with the additional 'shadows' of the kites is, just 'magical'. (There is real 'Art' in there somewhere <grins>)

Thanks

Felix

Great shot! It just replaced me background
