    You may want to consider making your photos available in higher
    resolution, otherwise it is hard to appreciate.

    id be interested in knowing a little bit about your methods?

    how is the camera triggered when the kite has reached its required
    position etc?

    interesting idea the photos are great

    Not a new idea, but certainly challenging. In the 1920s, my dad, Bob
    Ingraham, (founder of the American Kite Association) and Uncle Lee were
    building giant winged box kites and sending a Box Brownie aloft. They
    triggered the shutter with a rubber band and burning-cigarette
    arrangement. Somewhere around here I've got one or two of the photos; I
    remember that one of them shows their house in Hornell, in New York

    He did more kite photography in the 1960's, but I don't think I have
    any of those photos, and I don't recall what methods he used. I do
    remember that I wouldn't loan him my Nikon F!
