This is the story of how David learned to outsmart bullies, in this case a bully bear, who blocked his path on his walk through the forest. At first he was afraid, and then he remembered, “Fear makes the problem twice as large.” And then calmly and creatively, David tricked that bully bear again and again and again.

From Ancient Greek στοχαστικός (stokhastikós), from στοχάζομαι (stokházomai, “aim at a target, guess”), from στόχος (stókhos, “an aim, a guess”). That seemed right for the title.


The images that started this project relate to road construction. I found odd wrapped hydrants quite intriguing - a fashion show of sorts. The ‘shaming’ of various equipment is totally unintended, but when anthropomorphizing it becomes hilarious.

Most of the remaining images are just interesting patterns seen while walking around the neighborhood.
