Unknown Object in California Photograph of 2005

I live in Michigan and I was visiting my friend, Andrea, from August 9th 2005-August 16th 2005, in Redwood City, CA. That Saturday (I'm not sure what the date was, maybe the12th of August) me, my friend, and her boyfriend went to visit Half Moon Bay, CA. I was taking several pictures of the scenery, and I took this one picture of the highway and the trees in the background, because it was really cloudy and it looked really cool.

When I got the photo back, there were two strange objects in it. One object looked like a circular string with a tail, the other one looked like a black kite or a bird without wings with a tail extending from it. The black object is much stranger than the other one, and I keep telling myself that maybe it was a bug on the lense or an airplane or something. I did NOT see anything while I was taking the picture, there was nothing in the sky that day except clouds. I am sure there is a logical explanation for both of these objects, but I was wondering if you could take a look at it and let me know what you think? Again, no one saw anything that day, but Half Moon Bay is almost always cloudy, and it was cloudy but not rainy.

If you are unfamiliar with the area, Half Moon Bay is near San Francisco, CA, and Redwood City, CA. I took almost thirty pictures when I was in CA and that was the only picture that had the weird objects in it, I even took a few pictures of Alcatraz and there was nothing weird about those pictures...lol. I am the kind of person who likes to know everything, so even if it is not a UFO, I would appreciate it if you could tell me what it is, even if it's just a bug or helicopter something simple like that.

Oh, by the way, I used one of those disposable cameras from Kmart, not a digital camera.


If anyone has an idea of what the object on the far right side is, let us know. We have pretty much ruled out the strange light formation on far left as being anything important.
