  • Incredible kite flying.

    Got this one in an email; just too fantastic to not share so I share with you all.

    The man flying the 3 kites is in his 80s, and he's from Canada. He comes to the Washington State International Kite Festival every year. His skin is like leather as he normally flies with his shirt off. He is deaf, so when he flies we hold our hands up and wave them for applause. He flies 2 with his hands and the 3rd one is attached to his waist. Enjoy!

    You must watch to the end to see the amazing landing of that last kite! I would have those kites so tangled up, you could never get them separated again! And of course, make sure the volume is turned up because the music is wonderful and totally reflects the soaring of the kites. Beautiful.

    Strange bedfellows. I do think naming his friend "Meal" was a little mean.

    Darton Drake anyone
    by okplayer
    Is anyone here familiar w/ Darton Drakes work? I saw him lecture at NEIPP in Cape Cod Massachusetts this year, and I've been checking for his work lately. I really like his style, it usually doesn't go over the top, but sits comfortably on the edge. It's all photo-art and I think he always uses people...

    His diagnosis of myeloma cancer had been a shock, although he and I knew his weight loss might be due to some form of cancer, but his downhill dive while in the hospital (pneumonia and other infections) surprised him and all of us. He was (only)...
