There have been plenty of opportunities to take a chance on this project. Looking back at the image I have I thought these three were good illustrations.
The first was of the Playboy Club Casino where I think there could be a large chance of making a big loss on the roulette wheel if I were to play. The second is of a lottery ticket, where I guess there is a small chance of winning big. This particular one was in a news agents in Bond Street tube station and as it was Monopoly branded I just had to take the picture! Sadly I didn't win. The final image is of a picture being hung at the John Currin exhibition at Sadie Coles gallery in Mayfair.
I think there is little chance of the guy dropping this (as Jarvis Cocker looks on).

My images for this Chance location came from other locations on my journey which fit the theme. My first image is a sign in a window with the words "Do What You Love". It's something we all know we should do, but few of us do enough of. So, it's just a reminder to myself to take more of a chance and get on with the things I love and get rid of this I don't! The second was a reminder to take a chance on yourself... to Stay Lucky and Hustle. You stand a much better chance if you do. Finally, the Trafalgar Square image is a reminder to take a chance on life. We have no idea what is around the corner. If we take a chance on whoever and whatever comes our way, the world should be a better place.
So, take a chance today... on yourself, your ideas and on London, you may be surprised how well it turns out!
Within the game of monopoly the Chance square give a variety of instructions with varying degrees of joy. The chance cards were originally featured in The Landlord's Game which is considered to be the inspiration for the game of Monopoly.
For my first Chance option I have chosen images which show the popularity of taking a chance by Londoners. The first two images are of betting/gaming shops and the third is of a less than inviting location to buy your tyres.
