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

  • Shinead

    And whooo was flying the kite magnificently??

    • 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!!

    • this is true!! and i know because i am a professional!

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

  • I’m so getting a Golden Half now.

  • Jerry

    My flat will probably collapse if I take out all those what-nots from Daiso.

    • dude tell me about it! haha i always go in there hoping to only buy one thing – last time i was there i spent $16

  • Molly

    The third photo is such a great image!

    • thanks molly yea i think its my favourite too

  • YES DAISO!!! THAT PLACE IS THE BEST

    • great photos Carol!!! i can’t wait to experiment with different films in it

  • nice … camera looks nice; now to figure out some japanese to order one :P

  • emily

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

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

  • these photos are cool !!

    hmm reminds me of how long its been since I flew a kite…

  • emily

    we all need to fly a lot more kites
