LED Frisbee

>> Friday, October 1, 2010

I mentioned that I played frisbee at night at last weekend's barbecue, with a frisbee that has 4 LED lights spaced around its perimeter.  It never occurred to me to try to photograph such a thing, but my friend M (a fellow photographer mentioned in various previous posts) had the inspiration to try.  I thought these turned out supremely cool, although M expressed dissatisfaction with them.  He acknowledged that "artists are always their own worst critics", which I grant him certainly holds true for me.  Regardless, he generously gave me permission to post them.

That faint gray blob on the right hand side is me, probably trying to decide if I want to dive for it or let it hit me in the shins:

I think this one looks like a UFO.  Who knew that's how a frisbee moves through the air?

I believe this is me trying to snag it on my finger tips, just before I dropped it over the fence behind me:
This one must be a shot of someone else's toss - that pattern is far too neat for any of my throws:
And here I am, tossing it:
These served as a reminder to me to keep thinking of unexpected things to photograph.  You just never know what will turn out to be an interesting photo.

Ah - the frisbee! We used to spend hours playing with frisbees in my younger days. Don't see 'em too much any more. I like the lights - a nice touch - for many more hours of frisbee pleasure!
