I had only about 45 minutes to play around today so I gave it a go.

The wind was very, very gusty and about 5 bft.
And there was a bit of rain.
Not very ideal.
But I wanted to give the HQ 7' Graphic Delta a go.

In Groningen we have this new building that is quite something.
The Tasmantoren.
A nice object for a KAP session.

Pretty scary all together.
The Delta went nose down in flight twice but I could recover it.
Maybe it was a bit too much for this rascal. :)

And I had a visitor. A nice woman who was very surprised that people take pictures from cameras suspended from a kite line. :)

GoPro combined with the DIY Poor Man's Paint Mixer Stick Half Picavet.

Just goofing around with a friend, a few kites and cameras and watching the sun go down on a beautiful summer evening.

Not all pictures turned out great but at least interesting.
Great material for record sleeves. :)

The camera was lifted using a kite.
The Triton and 78" Rokkaku did very well.

Trip down memory lane.

Back to the spot where my father taught me how to built a kite and where I flew my first kite ever.
Thirty-something years ago.
On the very spot.
The times when everything was good and nobody would die.
Ever.
You know what I'm talking about.

A lot has changed.
This little harbor town is going down the drain and the camping site where I spend the better years of my youth has disappeared and shovels are removing the last proof of it's ever existence.

There I was.
Standing in a freezing cold and stormy wind.
Enjoying the PFK Nighthawk doing it's thing.
Thinking about the great times we had so many years ago.

'Noorddijk is a village in the Dutch province of Groningen. It is located in the municipality of Groningen, about 5 km northeast of the city centre.

FOO was a separate municipality until 1969, when it was merged with the city of Groningen.'

A nice view on the Noordermolen.

So.
In between two meetings I passed by this parc that seems like an ideal crime scene for the X-Files or Bones to me. ;)

Very depressing scene, all together.

I had a 78" rok in the car and gave it a go.
Near no wind and only 30 mins. to kill.
The rok did great.
Which is very good news.
For people who know about my love/hate-relationship with my older rok. :)
