Ruby Tuesday / and...More Kites from the Festival at Huntington Beach, California USA

 These photos were taken this weekend at Huntington Beach, California USA.
It was an amazing day for a kite festival.
I am posting kites "galore" on several memes this week!
This kite was literally planted on its tip on the side railing of the pier.  
As soon as someone would reach for it, it shot back up in the air, only to return again in another place.
I actually touched it once!
Very cool!

Click on photos to enlarge!
Lots of red for Ruby Tuesday


This guy cracked me up!  
He was so busy talking to his friends that he didn't notice that the kite was just "inches" from his head until he turned around.  
Everyone else noticed...
Then the kite was actually touching his forehead.
What a hoot!

Kite festivals are such a treat. How funny that the guy didn't notice one landing on his head.

Very colorful kite you captured! In the last picture, I hope the man wasn't poked with a pin or hard stick:)
Your post reminds me of my boy's excitement for summer when he enjoys flying kite with his dad. And it's summer time here.

I am old enough to remember paper kites in diamond shapes. These modern kites are wonderful. They seem engineered with almost airfoil shapes. So these traverse the skies and travel so much higher. Wonderful take!

What lovely and colorful shots. Yes, that last one is funny. I bet he got a kick out of that, or at least those watching did.
