Cool shot mate. A family having fun flying a kite, great way to spend the weekend.

@Dolphin: Thanks Dolphin! Glad you like it.
I went out with Ewan today of all days with a kite (it was Ewans induction into the world of 'fathers playing with their kids toys more than they should'). Freaky, juts got in and AM3ed and this was all rather strange...what are the odds eh?

@Duncan Galbraith: Thanks Duncs!
You've followed the rule of odds in this picture well done. I like the b&w choice for this picture as well. Interesting title, gave me a chuckle.

@Craiger: Thanks Craiger! Really enjoying your work recently. Keep it up.
An interesting composition! I like how the kite is out of the field... This way of framing keep a space to imagine it!

@Still: Thanks Still!
Great capture of a big kid (I've been there)!

@Damon Schreiber: Thanks Damon! Your post yesterday was incredible.
Nicely framed with the kite invisible. But what I like most about this is the composition, the rule of three is followed well here and the varying heights of the family members produces a stair step effect that leads the eye through the picture frame. The kite string also serves as a high value object connecting the low value objects in the man and woman. The white hat of the child then completes the connection as she is, much like her parents, low value and the hat high. All in all, well composed, good elements of storytelling, and good contrast.
And on yesterday's shot, it must have just been the processing that threw me off. Highly processed images tend to do that to me, I'm a film kind of guy and don't do much to my images so all of this photoshoppery tends to go over my head and mess me up!

@Paul Ricciardi: Thanks Paul! I admire your use of film. It's so much easier (and cheaper!) with digital.
Pop with a fag hangin' out of his mouth. LOL>>

@Daniel: Thanks Daniel! I guess it could have been part three of the smoker series!
Excellently composed mate; I like how the kid is looking out of the frame not taking much interest in what Dad is up to. Another great black and white shot!

@Chris Sullivan: Thanks Chris! As with many of my shots this week there was alot of luck involved!
Beautiful! It's very funny that the mom and the dad are holding the string, and the kid's just looking off in another direction!
