Caption This 18


Please name/caption this image [See below for instructions]
Shanghai, China, May 2007

This is one of the first photos that I captured after landing in Shanghai. We were on the bus on the way from the airport to our hotel, and I shot semi-randomly out the window as I tried to capture a quick hit of the essence of this very different-to-me place.

I first tried the out-the-bus-window technique in San Francisco earlier this spring. I figure it worked there, so it was worth trying again. I need your help with a caption, though. Here's the lowdown on how Caption This works:
Lee Ann gets the nod for last week's caption. She coined this: Would you like fries with that? Please drop by her site and congratulate her.

Your turn: Please come up with a zingy caption for this week's photo. Enter as many times as you want. Bonus points if you get immediate family members and beloved pets to join in. Most of all, have fun with it: I'll post the winner next Sunday.

Hi Carmi. How exciting that you have news! I can't wait to hear it!

Dara has already coined the first thing that came to my mind as I was going to say 'The Abbey Road of the People'. How about 'A zebra never changes his stripes'?

Looking forward to more of your pics from China.

How about a touch of Aerosmith for the caption? 'Walk this way'

How 'bout "Walking the Shanghai-way"?

sage said...

Come on, shoot some hoops with me. (said by the kid with the red sneakers). I'd say, welcome back stateside, but since you're not in the states, I'll make it "welcome back provinceside." And Michele says hi.

So typical of Asian cities.

"Hustle and bustle."

Ravvy said...

"Doing, the Beatles walk"
