Make a Saturday or Sunday visit to the Marina Green and you're likely to see Ray, kite pilot extraordinaire.

Kind of a challenge to photograph but here are my meager attempts. :)

Here he is at the controls (12 kites, 200lb test line)

...his skill at dropping the kites right next to pedestrians.

...people seem to like the kites

Great shots! By the looks of shot #4 the kites are very large? #2 is awesome, a different back ground would be nice. Nice work.

nah. The kites aren't very large...maybe 3 feet wingspan.
As for a different background, perhaps a piece of The Rock (Alcatraz) will do? :)
