Kite Cam.

Randall Munroe of xkcd launched a kite with a camera to take elevated photos. This one is of the Charles River and Northeast Boston. That's a pretty high-flying kite! Link -via Cynical-C

That's pretty neat. Check out this site which shows a wonderful super-high res pic of San Francisco taken by kite right after the 1906 earthquake. Click on the B&W pic, and then drag the red box around. Be sure to use teh zoom controls! Check out the legend and the ships at dock in the foreground. Incredible, huh?

Oh, the "Lawrence Captive Airship" was the photographer's massive kite-camera. Sounds more impressive than "Larry's Kite-Camera", huh?
