Simple kite aerial photography rig

Simple kite aerial photography rig | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it
I attached a tiny $10 "car key fob" video camera to a simple picavet rig. This is a nifty little gadget that keeps the video camera pointed in the same angle relative to the Earth even while the kite line's angle is changing (it also prevents the camera from spinning around). I referred to this handy kite aerial photography site to figure out how the picavet's strings are threaded.

"The beach was beautiful, but I was interested in getting to know it better." So she was somewhat surprised to learn that Edward Hopper, the beloved American realist painter, had also spent his summers there decades earlier; for whatever reason, Halaban says, people in town rarely talked about it when she was growing up.
