The gentleman below was closest to us so I had a better opportunity to get photos of him. I didn't learn their names, so will call him Mr. Grey. I'm not sure if he caught the disc in this shot. Sometimes, he ended up behind a tree and out of my view. What I can tell you is that he never gave up, no matter how high the disc flew or how far it traveled.
Mr. White throws here,
and again, I wasn't able to get a photo of the catch,
but loved the energy and the focus in the run.
Mr. White makes a good catch here. He often had to run into the play area, which meant both following the disc and navigating the equipment and people.
His throw..was caught beautifully by Mr. Grey.
This one was caught behind the tree :)
Mr. Grey told me that they had a point system to keep score, but I didn't catch the details of how that worked. I noticed that he put as much intensity in throwing as he did in the catch.
The next three photos were a sequence of steps in one catch.
Two steps here to show the next throw. Preparation..
and follow through.I'm not sure if Mr. White caught it. Can you spot the disc at the far right?
Another catch in a three-step sequence
And right back at Mr. White..
who catches it and..
Mr. Grey gave it his all for this one..
and looked ready,
but it sailed..
over his head..
and almost into a second play area.
"Hey, come back here!"
It was only at this point that I spoke to Mr. Grey. His shot here..
went almost directly to..
Mr. White, though he did again..
have to navigate the playground..
in order to make that impressive catch. The lady on the swings..
was having at least as much fun, I thought, as the two gentlemen, and the dog didn't seem to mind Mr. White's presence. The rest of the photos are in sequence and self-explanatory. The disc is just below the seagull in the photo below.
Thanks, Mr. Grey and Mr. White. We had fun watching you get the most out of a great day.
