Pic(k) of the week 33: The Kite Runner
Today is the last day in my home country Belgium. I got here just under three weeks ago and I managed to include quite a bit of photography during the trip. Some personal projects, quite a few air to air work as well as a shoot for a large business aviation client. More on this the coming weeks.
Last week was spend on and around the North Sea. A 36hr boat trip on a friends yacht, followed by a few days at a beachside apartment in Koksijde.
It was at the latter, that I photographed this Asian child playing with his kite. Shooting with a long lens, he never noticed me, which makes for a very natural look. The image immediately reminded me of the famous book / movie "The Kite Runner" written by Khaled Hosseini.
