Shanghai, China, May 2007 [Click for a bigger dose]
Note from our sponsor: Oops. I'm a little late getting this week's Caption This entry posted. With all the hullabaloo surrounding my job change and a family wedding thrown in for good measure, I ran out of time to give this important feature the attention it deserves. My apologies. So let's play Caption This. A little late, mind you. But all good things are worth waiting for, right?You can tell a lot about a society by its advertising. The messaging that blankets the streets of this city is almost on its own worthy of a trip. I could have sat on a bench and simply watched the ads drift by on the side of the trams that bring shoppers back and forth along the pedestrian mall. But it was a lot more fun to chase them down on foot and then shoot them while walking or trotting, much to the amusement of passers-by.
But as much as I enjoyed taking the shot, I can't think of any words to accompany it. What would you call this image? Here's how you can get involved:
Bob-kat for coining last week's winner, Walk This Way. There were so many incredible entries - including more than a few Beatles-themed ones - that I had a difficult time choosing. Thank you all for making this such an enjoyable milestone each and every week (and sometimes a little late!) Please visit Bob-kat's site and say hi from me. While you're there, drop a kind word in for her mom, who's in the hospital.
Your turn: Put on your creativity cap and come up with a caption that best describes this photo. Come up with two captions. Or three. As many as you wish. Get your mother-in-law involved, too, because MILs often have great senses of humor. I'll post the winner and the next Caption This entry this coming Sunday.
