A lot of people like to photograph flying things—dragonflies, hummingbirds, airplanes—but it’s a lot more creative to photograph something that isn’t supposed to fly, for example, your roast beef sandwich.

Photographer Steve Aishman is very interested in throwing his fast food and taking pictures of it in flight, and has so far captured everything from Filet-o-Fish to Frostys levitating in mid-air. This seems like quite a challenge—for instance, you can only really take a picture of your flying ice cream cone once, unless you have a really talented catcher on the other side.

It’s a good excuse to start a food fight. At the very least, the next time your nieces and nephews start throwing nuggets at each other, pull out your camera and consider it practice for migration season.
