I took many shots of a boy and his kite on the beach, from the cliff top in the summer. This is what I have done with them. I have deliberately chosen windows to look out from and frame them in
Thanks for looking.
Free as a bird, blowing in the wind - all part of my thoughts at the moment

Beautifully open, airy image here Helen even with the window frames. I particularly enjoy the blue kite and tail winding through the image holding it together. More metaphors perhaps.....

Thanks Carol and Barbara - I'm glad the kite works as holding it together - it needed something with movement.
