Weekly Photo Challenge: Close

By Vladimir Brezina

This week’s Photo Challenge is Close.

Kayaking around New York Harbor, sometimes we get just a bit too close!

Sometimes we have the upper hand…

… other times clearly not!

My second take on “Close” is here.

Other nice interpretations of “Close”:

    • But it is considerably faster! It reminds me of the Roman gladiatorial contents in which the opponents had quite different but complementary capabilities… (not that we fight to the death, of course—we run away…)

      • :) thanks a lot :), the first one happens to be my favourite too. I’ve just remembered your post about heat and was wondering what are the temperatures over there today? Here we are having 36 with humidity and it is only mid-June :(.

        • In NYC it’s actually been surprisingly cool so far in June (mid- to upper 70s Fahrenheit, around 25 degrees Celsius)—that is, about the normal June temperatures that one would have expected in years past, but we’ve already got into the habit of expecting extreme heat.

          Now that I’ve written that, I’ve looked up the predicted temperatures for the rest of this week, and, of course, Wednesday and Thursday are predicted to hit record highs (mid-90s)…

  32. I like your bugs – I always like bugs – but think the two photos here are unique moments, especially the bird. Well caught for that one and I’m glad the second did not catch you.
