Challenge your Camera – Sport

This week although Dr. B is hosting the challenge, the theme is from another blogger – Sheree at View from the Back.

I’ve gone with a Kite theme and some are from the archives but some are new for a change!

The featured image is of kite surfers at the Costa de Calma Fuerteventura, Canary Islands, Spain.

Both of the above photos are from our time in Hyderabad, India. In the left photo you can just make out the kite these young boys are trying to fly. It was taken at Paigah Tombs. The photo on the right is again boys flying kites, but I would actually put this in the genre of “dangerous” sports! I was quite far away when I took this with my Canon Powershot and used maximum zoom, hence blurriness.

On my way home the other day, I stopped at Matilda Bay Reserve, Perth, WA to take some shots of the kite surfers. The wind was up and they were going great guns, skimming over the choppy Swan River.

  1. Kite flying is a mega sport in Kathmandu on a particular day of the year, the 10th day of the Dasain festival in October. It celebrates the killing of the devil king Rawan who had 10 heads. Kites are flimsy paper, but the string is deadly, impregnated with glass powder. The sport is actually kite fighting, manipulating your kites from rooftops to cut other kites down with your string. Huge groups on rooftops, roars of laughter and dismay, boys looking for girls and lots of food. Great fun.
    Thanks for joining in again, one day to spare 🤣🤣
