Grand Bend, ON, July 2007 [Click to enlarge]
The parking lot that fronts onto the beach of this lakeside resort town is surrounded by a simple, low fence of thick chain strung from post to post. It's the kind of installation that seems to fade into the background. Well, for most people.
I liked the texture of it in the bright late afternoon sun. I liked the message of strength in the scene. But enough of what I like. What matters is the caption that you're going to give it (you are going to play Caption This, aren't you?)
The rules, such as they are, can be found here.
Your turn: Name this picture. Win pseudo-valuable prizes! Become a Caption This legend. Enter as many times as you want. Bonus points if you refer your relatives.
Oops, almost forgot: Last week's photo of pylons on a running track was a popular one. I received so many good ones that it prompted hours of agonizing and fretting. There may have been a little pacing involved as well. Ultimately, though, there can be only one Caption This winner. Really! I used the Miss Universe competition as my guide, and to the best of my knowledge they've never named two winners in any one year. Well, except when those porn charges came up. But that was an unfortunate anomaly. Oops, I'm rambling. Yes, the winner:
Sara for this lovely play on words: Where did you say the starting blogs should go? Please take a moment to visit her excellent blog, Garnet's Adventures, to congratulate her.
Other notable submissions include:
- As they make the final turn, it's the coneheads in the lead!!! (from BurntOfferings)
- I heard it's lonely at the top... but I don't think we will ever know... (from JC)
- Embarrassed that he missed the starting gun, Mr. Conehead stood still and hoped no one would notice him. (from Danny)
- The garden gnomes were able to move about unnoticed once they removed their caps and stacked them neatly on the track. (from Dara)
