Caption This 26
Please give this picture a name and/or caption [See below for how this works]
Shanghai, China, May 2007 [Click image to enlarge]
Sometimes, the best way to capture impromptu photos when visiting a faraway or otherwise new-to-you place is to simply walk and shoot. No need to overthink the composition: just point your camera at whatever captures your eye. You can figure out meanings and settings later on.
Which is what I did as I walked along the riverfront in Shanghai. It was a hot and humid afternoon, and I was, as usual, lagging behind my very patient and understanding group of colleagues. And as I saw this image of a family out for a walk by the water, I knew it was a keeper. In this case, one shot was all it took. Now it's your turn to name it.
Your turn: Please come up with a caption or title for this photo. Post it in a comment. Post as many captions as you wish: I give props to multiple-submitters. I'll post the winner next week. Need to refresh on the Caption This rules? Click here.
About last week's winner: The picture of two servicemen sitting atop their Hercules transport plane piqued a lot of response. Awareness takes it with, "Stan and Joe opted for the economy tickets. Little did they know it was more than surviving without complimentary nuts." If you haven't seen her site, you're missing out on one multitalented Canadian.
One more thing: It's been half a year since I started Caption This. I didn't really think it would last as it has....I don't typically stick with regular features on my blog. But this one seems to have hit a bit of a nerve, and I'm really enjoying the week-to-week progression. I hope you are, too.
