The images in this post and in the related gallery on my website were taken during World Wide KAP Weekend which occurred May 2-5, 2008. This event was organized by the international Kite Aerial Photography community. More information about this group can be found in the Kite Aerial Photography photo pool on Flickr as well as the KAP Discussion Forum. This was the first of 4 locations that I chose to photograph during this event (See also KAP 2008-22, KAP 2008-23, KAP 2008-24).
A book which includes 4 images from each participant has been published and is available at blurb.com
This session took place “over” Lansdowne Park, Ottawa, Ontario. Targets included the Aberdeen Pavilion (locally known as the Cattle Castle resulting from it’s historical role in agricultural fairs held in Ottawa), as well as Frank Clair Stadium, the Rideau Canal and skyline shots of the downtown area and the Glebe.
Here is one of my favourite aerial shots to date. It is an overhead view of the Aberdeen Pavilion (Cattle Castle) in Lansdowne Park:
One of the most photographed bridges in Ottawa, especially at night. It is the Bank Street bridge over the Rideau Canal. The camera is high over the playing field of Frank Clair Stadium.
