Taking a Frisbee for a spin
Photographer: Joel Schnell
Camera: Canon 5D MKII
Editing: Lightroom 4, Photoshop CS5 

I haven’t had a new Frisbee since I was a teenager, and April in the Midwest is Frisbee weather. I picked up a Pro Classic 130g Frisbee, and a Frisbee Classic to keep in the trunk of the car on the ready. I’m a bit rusty but it’s all coming back now— finger spins, left-and-right hand catches, boomerang flights, and the perfect hover float before it falls right into the receiver’s hand. The simple pleasure of the smell of fresh green grass, the trees in bloom, the barbecue grill heating up, and a quick toss of the disc before the coals are ready.
