Escape from the Camera by Spidere, K prime

September 28th, 2007 9:46 AM

INSTRUCTIONS: Set the timer on your camera for 2 seconds and hit the shutter button.

Now run. Run!

(Inspired by Escape from the Camera)
2 seconds snow fall

I really wanted to actually get away from the camera here, not just try to escape.

The first attempt was not nearly far enough away; the easy success was dry and bitter, like the taste of ash. I wanted a challenge.

Neither of us had 2-second timing, so we had to make do with 10 and zoom. So Kprime and I set up a target across the field. Go. Go. Go.

Even after several tries, we never quite made it in time. It was so close, though, so close...

Two weeks later, I still hadn't posted this task. Why? That lingering feeling of incompleteness. I had to go back, had to try again. Even if I ended up failing again. As Beckett says. Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.

It took several more tries, with a return for water, an apple, and better running shoes. But eventually, eventually there was success.

Oh, right...why did we have to escape?

Always watching

Because the monkey had a camera. He is always watching.

The monkey!

The monkey!


Escaping via monkey bars

Monkey bars are hard to do on the first try; I didn't get very far.

Eventually you get the hang of it again.


Too-easy escape

Too-easy escape

Kprime escaped, had time to get bored, turned around and is walking back; Spidere has still escaped.


Harder escape attempt

Zoomed in, to show us still in flight.


Almost...

Almost...

...but not quite. This was the farthest we got that first day.


So close!

So close!


Finally made it!

Finally made it!

Safe at last from the camera.
