It is the same in my home town too when we were growing up. We actually had a special thread of
certain length closer to the kite and we engaged in Kite fights. The idea being using the razor sharp
specially treated thread you cut off the other kite. Thank you.
P.S. Due to urbanization and high rises the sky has been crowded with concrete towers and the this
local art is being if not already disappearing.
aster wrote:Henry, the four gallery sets of your Turkey road trip is just brilliant. Honestly, the photos of Pamukkale (Cotton Castle, when translated to English) shots are the least tourist crowded shots of the region that I saw to date. The compositions are lovely also; the sky and clouds mirrored on the surface of the water pools. The Necropolis and the abandoned Greek town in Kayaköy, the theatre, the balloon ride and the amazing views are just great. I just love that you actally got tourist-free shots of the Cappodocia landscape othe rthan the balloons in the air which actually is very refreshing against the relief of the particular landscape.
Istanbul shots are also great in their sincere, candid takes of the people while the interiors and the rooftop views of the Galata Bridge from Suleymaniye Mosque and the interiors from other mosques are mystical.
You must have been up very early for some of these shots or maybe the weather conditions, like rain and mist kept the crowds at bay.
