Granddaughter Maria showing her form while tossing a boomerang. She was never able to get it to return, however. Because it’s too big for her, she cannot throw it hard enough or cause it to spin fast enough to make a complete circuit. It was a bright day and a fast shutter was possible.


boomerang, grandkids, maria

    Great timing!!!

  • Thanks, Marjie. She tossed it quite a few times, so I had quite a few chances to get it right.

  • Thanks, MSPhoto. Finding a place to do this is not always easy. People watch a lot of TV imagine that boomerangs are weapons, and those people are easily alarmed.
