Today was the annual kite flying day of the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University's School of Architecture. A couple of hundred architecture, technology and interior design students take part in this ice breaker event at the start of a new year. Unfortunately the Windy City didn't live up to its reputation and the kite fliers struggled a bit to get their creations into the sky. This guy with his kite on a fishing rod was one of the successful fliers who stayed airborne for more than 5 seconds.
Due to the fact that the wind wasn't playing along I couldn't really get any pictures of lots of kites in the sky at the same time, but I did catch Spongebob Squarepants soaring overhead.
