Availability: Ready to download

Short of near disaster or the sublime, what are our most memorable outdoor moments made of? The totally surprising, sometimes bizarre oddball moments that catch our psyches off guard and strike our funny bones to the core. Call it the wild side factor. The editors of Outside proudly present outstanding images gleaned from 300 issues of their back-page "Parting Shots" photo Short of near disaster or the sublime, what are our most memorable outdoor moments made of? The totally surprising, sometimes bizarre oddball moments that catch our psyches off guard and strike our funny bones to the core. Call it the wild side factor. The editors of Outside proudly present outstanding images gleaned from 300 issues of their back-page "Parting Shots" photo feature. It's their way of celebrating the pratfalls and singular coincidences of an outdoor life—the comic circumstances of relatively tame mammals (us) spending more and more time closer and closer to large, wild animals. These images are a rare chance to look into the wide world outside and laugh at both ourselves and that infinitely wondrous, entertaining three-ring circus we call the universe.

    Introduction by Hampton Sides 3*** The full title and subtitle is all the synopsis you need: The Polar Bear Waltz and Other Moments of Epic Silliness: Comic Classics from Outside Magazine's "Parting Shots" I thought this would be interesting to look at, but I was not so intrigued by many of the pictures. Some look obviously staged to me, not the happy coincidence that Sides touts in his introduction. Still, many of these photographs are truly marvelous.

Some look obviously staged to me, not the happy coincidence that Sides touts in his introduction. Still, many of these photographs are truly marvelous. I particularly liked the shot “Above Chamonix, France” by Monica Dalmasso of Stone. It took me a few moments to find the “hook” in this photo and it’s a doozy. (Or should I say “dizzy” … because that’s the feeling I got.) All told, it’s a nice treat and a way to spend a few minutes on a snowy day indoors.
