the gentleman handling the three kites in this particular photo, he is Ray Bothel, from Bristish Columbia, Canada and is 84 years old.  Been doing this for thirty some years I understand and hold the world record of flying kites for as long as 14 hours.  I think the record was set here in Long Beach, WA.  Anyway the man is just an amazing crusty old kite flyer.
