Kites at the Festival

Here are some of the kites that were being flown at the 2009 Adelaide International Kite Festival on Saturday. I used to make and fly kites as a child but mine were very basic in comparison; modern materials and technology have changed kite flying immensely.

















































Seeing all these beautiful kites has rekindled my interest; a pity I have so many other hobbies already!

I had so many kinds of kites. Wonderful. One of them, and if I could see the flights in the sky. Greetings.

They're all so pretty! I especially like the round, blue one at the bottom. Looks very challenging to fly!
