One of the great things about KAPing is that I’m not really sure what I’ll get until I get home and look at the photos. Currently, my camera takes a photo approximately once every fifteen seconds and a tiny, battery operated motor (called a servo) also rotates the camera about 30 degrees at the same time. As a result, the camera eventually makes a complete circle and starts all over again. While many KAPers use remote controls designed to pilot radio controlled model airplanes, my rig does sport that feature. That’s not a problem though as it’s fun to see what comes up. About the only thing I can control is the angle of the camera and even that is somewhat variable as the angle can change due to the winds. I like this photo of the colors (the blue water contrasted with the trees that line the roads and think that the angels of the docks are also interesting. All in all, I’m pleased with the way this photo turned out.
Yes, I’ve been bitten by a strange new bug – Aerial Kite Photography (KAP). I was so thrilled with my first successful flight that I had to go flying for a second day in a row. As I love the ocean, I thought that the Dana Point Harbor might be an interesting place to go. It turns out that I was really lucky – the day was absolutely gorgeous, the winds cooperative, and the scenery beautiful. I love the color of the water and, as can be seen, it was a clear day (if you look carefully, you’ll see a bit of fog forming in the distance). Still, I have no complaints as far as the weather was concerned – I couldn’t have planned it any better.
