Last weekend, we tied an old mobile phone to a kite, and flew it on Blackheath! Have a look at the youtube video above!
This is something that I’ve wanted to try for about 10 years, but never had a camera that should shoot video, could take photos on a timer, or one that I wasn’t scared about dropping from a great height.
The results are not that wonderful, and certainly not a patch on this guy’s attempt. But he had a much fancier cameraphone than mine, and gaffer tape, whilst we had to make do with elastic bands to hold the phone!
I think I need to try making a Picavet Suspension… Then maybe I can take Blackheath’s equivalent of this photo
Without the devastating earthquake beforehand, obviously (photo from 1906 in wikipedia)
