Quilly is the pseudonym of Charlene L. Amsden, who lives on The Big Island in Hawaii. When she is not hanging out with Amoeba, she is likely teaching or sewing. Or she could be cooking, taking photographs, or even writing. But if she's not doing any of that, she's probably on Facebook or tinkering with her blog.


  1. I had THOUGHT about kites… but we haven’t had enough wind for Luz and I to fly hers yet! THAT is a definite benefit to living near the ocean! Wind! That kite’s a doozy!

  2. Horsoon — the joy on the face of the child hoolding this kite’s string would have definitely lifted your gaze skyward.

    Mar — thank you.

    Karen — in a couple of my shots it did just that!

    Melli — here, the wind is vital. On windless days we all simmer in our own sweat.

    Doug — thank you. That tail was doing a lot of dancing, making the momma of the small boy working the kite a bit nervous.

  3. Maggie — thanks!

    Juliana — if only I could fly like a kite (though I am willing to skip the crashing into trees and power line stuff).

  4. That thing looks mighty similar to the jets that fly overhead daily. If those jets ever trail tails like that kite, I am headed for a cave.

  5. Another one you could have incorporated for more than one theme! I love how the colors of the kite work with the sky. Nice capture.

  6. Cath — luck, but thanks.

    Sauerkraut — that might be a good time for “duck & cover”>

    Robert — the colors are what first drew me to raise my camera. Thanks.

    (I wantd to make a link,
    but am at a loss where to find and link with Mr. Linky)

  9. Merisi — Mr. Linky is only for the people playing in the Alphabet Challenge. That is how they find one another. However, if you want this version of Mr. Linky to open you have to click on him. I haven’t paid for the fancy kind because I am a poor teacher who has lost enough time and money to this addiction hobby called blogging.
