LET'S GO FLY A KITE: This photograph of a kite struggling to escape has been named The Journal's Picture of the Week.

It was taken by Ros Payne, of Corton Road, in Lowestoft, while she was watching her son Jack fly his kite on the town's south beach in February.

'The enormous clear blue sky, sandy beach and of course the wind, sum up Lowestoft at its best,' said Mrs Payne.

The judges were particularly impressed by the way Mrs Payne had managed to capture her son and the kite at opposite corners of the frame.

They must be taken by amateur photographers, and we'd prefer digital pictures. We do accept prints, but they need to be copies as we cannot guarantee their return.
