Weekly Photo Challenge: Juxtaposition

Wandering with my camera, I often find my eye drawn to strange bedfellows. Juxtapositions. Foils. Unexpected pairings.

Juxtaposition

Growing up in the Pacific Northwest I was fascinated by stories of hunters and scientists finding possible Sasquatch tracks in the woods.  There was even a TV show in the 1970’s that we would watch, huddled under blankets, while “big foot” tried to crash into a mountain cabin terrifying the campers inside.  Now I know it was just an actor growling in a smelly, shaggy suit but the idea of an 8 foot tall hairy creature roaming the woods looking for food was enough to make me afraid of dark windows for years.  Portraying Sasquatch in a Santa hat wouldn’t have had the same sensationalistic effect but it could have saved me from some sleepless nights…

      1. true, stories after dark could be quite something. i will never forget the story of the vidow viper, which is somehow understood as being a widow viper. did that one make the rounds with you too? about someone getting creepy calls every half hour with a strange voice indicating that this was the vidow viper, “and i am only five miles away”. the last call was with the sinister message, “I am one mile away.”
         
        and then a half hour later the doorbell rings and there is a pounding on the front door, and a voice cries out, “i am the vidow viper, and i am here! do you have any vidows that need viping?”

      2. Yikes! We didn’t get that one but there was a creepy story about Bloody Mary. If you said her name three times and looked in the mirror at midnight you would see her as your reflection…
