What a fun day! May I just say, it is so much fun to be at the kite festival in Berkeley. It was awesome! There were Japanese kite makers. There was food including Ben & Jerry's, Vegan, barbecue chicken, hot dogs, pretzels, and kettle korn. There were so many children! Everywhere! There were stroller backups! I had a blast taking video and photographs of everything. It was very windy, sunny, and cool. I was very lucky, I got to park close and only had to pay 10$. There were choreographed kite ballets. This is very serious business. This includes music. There was a dj/emcee. There were vendors with hats, tee shirts, and jewelry. Be sure to bring a blanket to sit on, sunglasses, sunscreen and water. I am sure that I got some footage to add to my portfolio, I certainly got some great practice in. I noticed that I could have brought my tripod after all. It would have been nice because it was so windy that I was getting buffeted around. I think I will go back tomorrow. I was focused today and I think that I liked it!
