Caption This 11


You get to name this shot [See below for the rules, such as they are]
Laval, Quebec, August 2006


The Caption This parade continues this week with a somewhat more stark view of the urban landscape. If you're new to Caption This, here are the three things you need to know about it before continuing (cue the theme from Mission Impossible):
Speaking of last week's entry, please clap your hands for Blond Girl, whose caption will forever echo in my head as I tuck into a loaf:
Challah-lujah, that's good bread!
I read BG because she writes with honesty and empathy about how she simply wants to have a good life for her family. Like me, she uprooted to a new city far from home, and she writes about the challenges of everyday life in a strange new place. If you haven't yet read her, drop by. She's a worthy addition to the blogroll.

Judy and David get honorable mention for proposing the same heavenly term. I never cease to be amazed by the brilliance and kindness of the kind folks who visit my site. Thank you all for making CT such an enjoyable highlight of my week - and hopefully yours!

Your turn: Please think up a caption for the picture above and drop it into a comment. Come up with more than one if you wish - the more the merrier. Tell a friend. Vote for someone else'ssubmission. Spread the joy in any way you can think of...it's time to take Caption This to the other side of the planet! Or at least to a somewhat greater level of Zen-ness.

'Ladeez and Gentle-mennnnnnnnn....behind door number three......?'

This is a powerful photo if, as you say, a bit stark.

I saw a 'Carmi-a-like' at the store this morning, taking a photos of some mud...I thought of you instantly :-)

We gotta get out of this place.

For some reason this makes me think of escaping...maybe too many movies.

Dear friend, this is a great picture. It makes me think of a doorway beween the stairways leading to heaven and hell. You always have the most compelling photos. Here today on my own and not from the M&G. Hope you and the family are having a wonderful weekend!

Michele sent me back to have another go so:

" Why not just put the door on the ground floor?"

St. Peter's Gate...Heaven is up and Hell is down....what's YOUR choice?

well... that WAS my choice, until I actually read all the other entries...now I have to come up with something else.

How about: For Sale: Stairway to Heaven (Hell stairs included at no extra cost!)
