Fly little kite fly!

My friend Shinead didn’t believe my $2 kite (from the greatest store EVER a.k.a. Daiso) would fly so we took it to Kitsilano to test it. I brought my little Golden Half camera to document the triumph/failure. As you can see, it flew magnificently a.k.a. Shinead is an idiot.

    I was happy to find that London Drugs could in fact process my halfy film and print it split onto 4×6’s

      but who was able to make the kite “dive-bomb the ground like a bird attacking”…

  • V.

    yes!! I’ve been longing to see some shots from the Golden Half. And any professional kite flyer should know $2 pharmacy kites are the best kites to fly!!

      i dont know why some of the prints have a huge black line and some are skinny but i like how unpredictable it is

    in the story of a kite a photo of a tree is rather ominous
    -did it end the way it looks?
    (i hope not)

    • http://www.jeffhamada.com/ jeffhamada

      haha i didn’t think about that – the kite did not get near any of the trees!

This is nuts! I wonder how many times they had to shoot this (and how much plane fuel was used). Watch “Upside Down & Inside Out” on Booooooom TV.
