The phrase “close call” dates from the late 1800s and comes from sports, alluding to an official’s decision, or call, that could have gone either way. Later, photo-finish images were made by a camera that was positioned at the finish line of a horse race. The camera’s shutter, which captured over 100 images each second, was triggered as the leading horse broke a thin thread on the race track.
This piece has been created from acrylic paint on canvas and beautifully mounted in a contemporary white wooden frame.
