Community Kite Aerial Photography project taking shape:

All these cameras have flown at different times according to how much lift I have at the time. After quite a bit of patient fiddling they are now all mounted on rigs ready for flight on a kite line:

I have the option of swapping the Canon Eos M for a Nikon D5100 (if things are going well) the next challenge is to figure out a procedure for a group of people to fly them at the sametime…

In theory the mix of weights will ensure a good variety of photo-cover if flown from a matching set of kites: I now need to get 5 ready for the first trial OWLP community KAP walk proposed for a Sunday between now and December as a pilot for a community programme in the Autumn of 2015 and 2016. 10 persons flying 5 kites looks like an achievable number.

About markatousewasheslps

I am currently coordinating a partnership-led bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund (for a circa £600K Heritage Grant bid) focusing on strengthening the unique yet vulnerable natural heritage in the Cambridgeshire Fens surrounding the Old west River, the new 'New Life on the Old West' project. Until recently I was the Programme Manager for the Ouse Washes Landscape Partnership scheme, leading on the 1-year development and 3-year delivery phases of the Heritage Lottery Fund grant-aided Ouse Washes Landscape Partnership (OWLP) scheme (from Dec 2012 until March 2017), on behalf of and in close cooperation with a wide range of local, regional and national partner organisations. The Ouse Washes LP's portfolio of 51 projects have focused on: conservation works to historic and natural environmental assets; improving community participation & engagement with the landscape and its heritage; increasing access and learning opportunities; and providing more opportunities for training in traditional land management skills. The overall aim has been to leave a long-term legacy for this fascinating and unique landscape, in the process creating tangible improvements to social, economic and environmental aspects of this landscape, its heritage and communities.
