Of Rabbits and Kites

Every now and then either we pack our kite gear and go to Zagreb, Croatia – or our friends from Zmajoljupci – Croatian Kite Association visit us here in Ljubljana. This time it was their turn (we were in Croatia in August for the fantastic event in O., and are going back to the island … Read more

Hot Town, Summer in the City

Long ago, a boy was born who was so fair and pleasing to the eye that he was named Love-to-see – Ljubo-vid in the language of the land.

A Flight Over the Crow’s Nest

We’ve been doing kite aerial photography for over six years and, with the exception of a dog, a herd of cows, and some horses, we’ve never caught an animal – even when we fly in areas where wildlife is supposed to be prevalent. Last weekend, however … The Ljubljana Marshes, our favorite and most frequented … Read more
