Well, we've found some strange circles in our kite aerial photos and decided to investigate ...
And then many things happened: a rogue kite was flying alone, the circles were not what we thought they were, and a piece of ancient pottery was found.
Did our kite really discover an Iron Age settlement?
Please, check the full story on our KAP website... it's a bit of a long read, but is interesting, I promise 😉
Exactly one year ago we first let our blue Rokkaku fly with a camera suspended from it. We had so much fun flying, experimenting, learning ... It was a great year and we've compiled an article on Medium about kite aerial photography in general, with some thoughts, personal experiences, tips - and a lot of photos - hoping to inspire and popularize KAP.
Every comment, suggestion - and critique - is gretly appreciated ... 😉
Well, maybe this topic should be in the KAP forum, but we got to ask -
did you ever flew a kite where you felt you shouldn't?
We did a kite aerial photography session above a cemetery - and it felt wrong ... our plan was to fly the kite directly above it ant to shoot straight down, but we just couldn't do that - so we flew the kite beside the cemetery ... it was like we were invasive and disrespectful ... like the fun that goes with flying a kite was somehow inappropriate for the place.
Had any of you a similar experience?
