Here is a photo I have always liked, but haven’t had a reason to scan it in until now (a SE Asian travel magazine just bought the story)
These kites are like hawks: ungainly on land, powerful and fast in the air. They can easily lift 2-3 men off the ground in strong winds, which is why they are flown by teams of more than a dozen.
You can see several other photos here. The color is courtesy of Kodak slide film. Yummy.
