Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

The camera was sitting in the bag away from the blowing sand. Suddenly, I made a dive for the bag to catch the shot.

Excellent capture.  Smiley

That's part of the reason I prefer cameras to camcorders.

Capture that split-second.  Smiley

Here's my last scramble shot:

Sure hope you submit that photo for the annual GWTW calendar. I'm sure it would get plenty of votes.  Grin

I think we can invoke a Rule 34 policy on this one. (A hat tip to FA for the 'education'  Undecided)

Thanks John.

Some of the reactions have been just what I expected/hoped for. No coffee through the nose reports though (the apex of reactions). Grin

Not sure if these two Meanies are acquainted.

Remember the kiteporn.com web site?

Dave is an old pro at this.

And he spends way too much time looking at big kites from odd angles...   Cheesy
