The images in this post and in the related gallery on my website were taken during World Wide KAP Weekend which occurred May 2-5, 2008. This event was organized by the international Kite Aerial Photography community. More information about this group can be found in the Kite Aerial Photography photo pool on Flickr as well as the KAP Discussion Forum. A book which includes 4 images from each participant has been published and is available at blurb.com
This was the third of 4 locations that I chose to photograph during this event (See also KAP 2008-21, KAP 2008-22, KAP 2008-24). This session took place at the Central Experimental Farm in Ottawa, Ontario. The main targets were the Dominion Observatory and the John Carling Building, several other buildings on the campus, the grounds of the Central Experimental Farm, Carling Avenue, and skyline shots of the downtown core. I was joined by fellow KAPper Matt Young and he and/or his kite line appear in several of the pictures. Dominion Observatory, Central Experimental Farm, Ottawa, Ontario.
