Find myself in yet another quandry, Snapped the first photo, down at Pelican Park at Woody Point, which shows two of the officials of an upcoming Kite Festival (Couldn't get to see the festival, too many cars and Sally had family commitments that superseded photography) who were testing conditions the week before the festival, and I was impressed that two Old Guys (Not Like ME) could control sp many kites at once. I also thought the number and variety in the sky made for an interesting shot.
Two days later I was out wandering around the neighbourhood and found this guy teaching his son HOW TO fly a kite. Dad was no better than I would have been but his son was right into it, and their mateship beamed out of both of them, I asked the kid if he would mind flying the kite horizontally at me for the benefit of the shot, Dad looked hesitant but the kid said "I'll have a go" which earned him a hearty pat on the back from Dad a "Well Done" from me and three smiles that put the Sun to shame. This is the proof that he succeeded when he said that he would "Have a Go" - This is what kite flying is all about so two for the price of one!
