collage : shark week


In honor of Shark Week, this collage seems very appropriate for today. I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned it before but I LOVE sharks! Great Whites, especially. I’ve been obsessed with Jaws since I was little and wait allll year long for Discovery Channel’s ode to these amazing prehistoric beasts. I even considered incorporating a shark design into my logo, but ended up going with my little giraffe instead…

I’m not really sure where the fascination lies, but I’m guessing it has something to do with the fact that sharks are one of the most feared and mysterious animals on the planet. All they do is eat and swim, always on the hunt. I know we’re not the snack of choice, but it’s the investigatory bite that will get ya.

This is why I’m the only east coast girl who moved to San Diego and never learned to surf. I just know I’d be that random statistic who gets attacked in 3 feet of water. So instead of becoming an urban legend, I’m perfectly happy watching crazy cameramen go diving off the coast of Guadalupe Island, simply for my entertainment. But the best part of Shark Week is the rare footage of a Great White breaching. Now that is something you just don’t see everyday.

  • I’m completely addicted this year! Though you’re not alone…I’m an east coaster too and never went more than a few feet into the water when I lived in CA :)

    • Hey Moira, happy to hear I’m not the only one who has a love/hate relationship with the ocean :)
