Font Tuesday - font foundry (and KAP)

Well, I have no fonts to show-and-tell for Font Tuesday, but I did set up my Font Foundry on our website. Our website which needs major graphic help... Someday.

I also put my Peppermint font into Type Tool, but it's not worth displaying until I get the letters re-sized to match.

We did indeed our kite in the air last night, and had some more fun taking photos. It really is more guesswork than science for us at this point; even looking at the kite with binoculars we aren't sure exactly where the camera's looking, how high it is, or whether or not the picture will turn out.

In an hour's time Daniel spent ten minutes getting the kite and camera out and launched, twenty minutes shooting 170 pictures (15 of which were photo-worthy, and another 24 were at least interesting) and half an hour getting the kite back down (the wind was stronger today.)

Me? I walked Mac and Bubbie around in the wagon, shot a few of the pictures while Daniel held the kite, talked to a few friends (who also took their turn with the remote control), and then walked the babies some more while Daniel cleated the kite off and took the remainder of the shots.

Even though it's nice to be outside in the sun and the wind, watching the photos on the computer slideshow is probably the most exciting part of the whole venture for both of us.

We're laughing that we took a photo every eight seconds on average when the kite was up, that about 10% of the photos turned out, and that we can't really tell which of us took what photo. I like it that way. It adds to the feeling that KAP is a shared adventure for us.

Hey that was pretty interesting. First I knew you were going to try KAP again and wondering checking and, since learning that buzznet was down, getting a notice of photos on Flickr and viewing them there I went back to your blog and caught the posting - must have been within minutes. We really enjoy both the photos and the fonts and sharing the adventure. Moog and Poppie
