Photographer's Note

This 7 element articulated kite was captured on the atlantic beach of Costa de Caparica, in the 'outra banda' region, the southern bank of the river Tejo estuary. Caparica is one of Portugal's best beaches - it's very long and sandy, the strong waves are almost always there and there are all kinds of sports facilities and a number of very fine beach cafe's.

It was captured during a day we spend with our dear Portuguese friends Manuela and Ana. We explored Barreiro, Almada & Caparica with them as guides. It was a delightful experience.

This is also another return to TE :-) I'll be posting a series about Portuguese leisure culture the upcoming weeks.

A video of the articulate kite in flight is here on You Tube: Caparica kites

The soundtrack : The magnificent seven
The alternative soundtrack (The Clash): The magnificent seven. Another feel and mood though ;-)
