Triskaidekaphobia - Photography Contest [13 entries]

The Hang-mans Knot Picture

Winning entry, with a score of:
65.7%
Contest goal:

"Triskaidekaphobia" is defined as the "Fear" of the number "13." Many buildings avoid the thirteenth floor, many airports do not have a 13th flight or gate, and many cities do not have a 13 Avenue or street. However, the Last Supper had 13 diners with Jesus and the 12 disciples, there are traditionally 13 witches in a coven and so on.

For the purposes of this contest we will embrace and clearly define this number. Take a photograph that has a direct connection to the number 13. Any subject matter is appropriate as long as it adds up to, or defines, the number of 13.

Common myth and belief is that to be a true hangman's knot this knot was to have 13 wraps to properly break the neck of the condemned...this however is untrue. Most commonly it was tied with wet or oiled rope and contained between 6 and 8 wraps. More information can be had at ...http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hangman%27s_knot (5 years and 1513 days ago)
