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)

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? :)
