Somewhere near Hamilton, Ontario, October 2005 [Click to embiggen]
The scene: I'm zooming home from Toronto after attending an industry "event" at a too-cool-for-mere-mortals club. Suddenly, my phone rings. A journalist wants to talk to me about the neat things I just saw. Not wanting to emboss the Ford logo from my rental car onto the back of that 18-wheeler just ahead of me, I ask if she can give me 10 minutes to get off the highway and find a safe place to stop. She happily agrees - live analysts give better quotes than dead ones, apparently - and I eventually find this lonely spot in the hinterlands just west of Hamilton.
When I'm finished chatting with her, I snap this shot because it strikes me as odd that I could be so productive while surrounded by little more than fields and cow pastures. The cows don't seem to mind my temporary intrusion.
Your turn: Please concoct a caption for this photo. I'll choose the most creative one and post the winner, along with a new image, next Sunday. As ever, I'm whoring myself out. So if you want to submit billions of comments, have at it. Bring along a group of drunken friends? Absolutely: the more, the merrier. Encourage your elderly parents to join in? Sure thing. We welcome all generations.
About last week's image of a parking lot line badly in need of resurfacing: Sad scenes often make great photos. Thankfully, you didn't disappoint with your suggestions. This week's winner comes from Linda: "This is your road, on crack." I can still hear the Dragnet-like music in the background. Honorable mentions go to:
- Sister AE: "I go to pieces."
- Kenju: Unplanned obsolescence."
- Tiel Aisha Ansari: "Pave meant less."
- Rainbow Dreams: "True colors exposed."
- Steve: "What lies beneath."
- Colleen: "You can't judge a crosswalk by its cover."
