portsmouth kite festival.



my family decided to trek to portsmouth to see a few kites a weekend during the summer. and oh no they're not the flimsy bin-bag material ones, they're full-on tigers, crocodiles and batmans!

mesmerised.


oh dad.

it was a day of colourful floaties in the blue sky and a challenge to shortlist your favourite kite.
i still wonder how the kites managed to stay afloat despite the weather being quite "windless" and sun-blazing....

the artist of these kites was inspired by stained glass windows.



there were exhibitions explaining the history of kites, stories of what inspired the design of specific kites, and even kite dances - bet you've never heard of that one before! :P




i'm sure there was a feeling of nostalgia as i looked up to the sky and admired each kite. i remember running circles round the garden trying to lift up a primary-coloured diamond kite, but it just. will. not. fly. 


i believe this was a three-day exhibition and i'm so glad to have discovered you can never be too old to love these beautiful air-puffed creations!!
