Week 13: Close Call

Another interesting concept for another interesting week.  I think the correlation of it being week 13 and “close call” is pretty funny.  Is it a “lucky 13” or a play on “Friday the 13th”?  I suppose that depends on what your definition of a close call is.  Maybe it’s narrowly escaping disaster, or an intentional flirt with death.  Try Google-ing “close calls”, and you’ll be pretty entertained with the images, as I was, and for a little longer than I would like to admit!  A lot are nature related, which reminded me of some of my possible “close call” images that I have.  Is it strange that I kind of want to go out in the ocean to see if I could have a close call with a shark for this week’s assignment?  I mean clearly, some of the google results were fake, but others are crazy!  Makes me a little wary about going into the ocean, but don’t worry, that’s not going to stop me.

The images that I found in my portfolio are far less exciting, but still gave me the feeling of “close call”.  When I see certain things in nature, or even while I’m just out and about, I make these subconscious decisions about what is happening in the situation.  Looking at my pictures below, the piece of fabric on a nail makes me think that someone was running, trying to escape something or someone else, and they just barely made it.  When looking at animals, I always assume that something is chasing it.  Fish, for example, only ever jump out of the water because something is chasing them!  I mean, it’s not like they jump out for any other reason (just kidding, clearly they may be doing some “fishing” of their own for a meal).  Also, whenever I see a large group of birds suddenly flying away from a tree, or hear a lot of chirping and squawking going on, for some reason my mind goes to “there’s a snake in that tree attacking the birds!”  Don’t ask me where that comes from — it’s a little weird, I know.  So enjoy my (possibly) fabricated “close call” pics below, while I start thinking of a good idea for this week!
