Title: KP11 Photos Completed (Finally)
Post by: chilese on March 11, 2013, 04:31 PM
DONE: Post 9 teaser photos.
DONE: Receive KAP photos of Old School Shoot from Gary Mark
           
DONE: Receive Old School Shoot photo from Della Stroup

DONE: Download 1600 photos.

DONE: Upload batches as possible.

This may be the best KP shoot ever.
It helped to have Bambi, Sean, Gary and a few others snap shots.

I'm guessing a few people will attempt to name all the kites from
the Old School Shoot. That should be a contest unto itself.

The list of what was left home is even more staggering.

This may become an annual event.

Start the Wayback Machine Sherman.  ???

I feel like a piece of me was there... picture #32 looks like my Solus. It just doesn't look right in the sun, that's my fog kite...

Thank you for the pictures, John, they came out great (as usual). The web cam is nice, but you really capture the moments and it's nice to see the details.

Sleeping with the Aura... JT is one really nice guy.  He was realy excited to present that kite to you... I picked th spider.  i thought it was the best for a guy who deserves it.  I usually go to the local Italian "Ventiamilia" store and get Jon and Marianne two giant Dago Subs ... Italian cheese and meats.  In your choice of Italian buns.  or loaf of bread.  It's the only way I have found to repay him for kind deeds.  JT is always being thoughtful and caring.  Great Guy.  Sleep well you deserve her.

600 photos left.

Still very little text.

Please add names or comments to the photos

Contrary to popular belief, I do not know

every person and kite.

My wife has been understanding of my kite addiction. ;)

However, the day I bring a kite to bed will be the end of my kite collection.

Somehow that doesn't sound as bad as John King taking a shower with his. ;D

chilese,

Incredible group of pictures.  I could taste the salt air.  ;D  Makes us up in the NE long for warmer days.  Chance of snow and 25 mph winds today.  :'(

Thank you again,

Doug

Wow thanks!
This was not a kite party... this was a kite orgy to me! (Oops! sorry)
I have never seen so many kites together and in such diversity of shapes, styles, colors and flying types...
I would just go nuts if I were there...   ???

Great pictures.
Thanks for showing them!

Yes, as always, a fine collection of photos.  Perhaps one of these years I'll get to kite party myself. (Might even bring a kite or two!) thanks for sharing.
