Weekly Photo Challenge: Split Second Story

In this week’s photo challenge, capture an image that tells a full story in a single frame. Every photo, I believe, tells a story, so I have taken a different approach and chosen some photos that capture a moment that makes you want to know what the full story is…or what happens next. These image do not tell the full story, they just leave more questions.

Out on the Tundra at Churchill, Canada looking for polar bears, we came across another Tundra Buggy. Just happened to snap the photo just as the man stuck his head out of the window as the bear reared up. What happened next?

This photo captured a moment in time on the streets of Beijing. We’re left wondering what are these two men talking about and why are they squatting on the side of the road chatting?

 

 

Hand feeding gulls

Hand feeding gulls

The split second moment that this Greek ferry passenger hand feeds a seagull. Is this a common occurrence? Did she do this often as the gulls seem to expect it?

 

 

A glimpse of Petra

A glimpse of Petra

 

The moment that you come across the break in the canyon walls and get your first glimpse of the Treasury Building at Petra in Jordan. It is the moment that you feel like Indiana Jones in the Last Crusade.

 

 

 

 

Dumb and dumber

Dumb and dumber

The split second moment that you wonder why you are about to re-enact a stupid scene from Dumb & Dumber while in an Ice Bar in Whistler, Canada. Why would you even think of doing this?

 

 

 

 

 

Extreme X-Scream

Extreme X-Scream

The split second that I thought I was going to die. The moment I thought that riding the X-Scream in Las Vegas was a stupid idea. Why would anyone do this giant teeter-totter, 866 feet above the ground?  Is being the only person on the ride an indication of how crazy this is?

Enjoying the ice sculpture at Lake Louise, Canada – the split second moment of serenity just before you get pelted!

  1. These are terrific images, especially the seagul and polar bear shots. I can’t believe how stupid that guy was to stick his head out the window.

  2. I couldnt believe it when I saw him get so close to the polar bear considering how dangerous they are (and he was the Tundra Buggy Driver!!!)
