We remember our kites catching a zephyr and pulling against the string in our hand. Our parents cheered us on, or our friends tugged at the strings of their kites beside us.
We had simple diamond shapes or complicated patterns of our favorite cartoon characters. We flew them on the beach, in a field, or from the top of the roof on our house.
Flying a kite is a joy no matter your age. For Throwback Thursday this week, share your favorite photo of kite flying on Facebook or Twitter and we’ll publish a selection of our favorites next week on the Flickr Blog.
