Caption This 33


Please name this image [See below for details]
Grand Bend, Ontario, July 2007
[Click to enlarge]


We were just getting ready to leave the beach after a great day spent beside Lake Huron. The kids were tired and happy. We were looking forward to a leisurely drive home through some of the most beautiful farmland imaginable.

I noticed her long before she got close. She never raised her eyes to anyone around her, preferring to instead focus, singly, on her pursuit of buried treasure. She clearly knew what she was doing, methodically covering the beach in a tight grid pattern, expertly avoiding everyone still playing around her. She seemed to exist in her own world.

Your turn: Please use your creativity to come up with a caption - or two, or three, or more - for this image. Winner will be announced next week. New to Caption This? Click here for the sorta-rules.

Last week's image of a canoe was taken by our son, Zach. He's become quite the photographer who's far more patient to think through a scene than I am. Awareness touched a chord with "Late August afternoon nap....." It just speaks to me.

Others that also got me thinking include:
Heidi: "Just waiting."
MissMeliss: "When there is no wind, row."
Sara: ""George still hasn't gotten the hang of docking the boat!"
Joy T.: "Reflections from the pier."

Good luck with this week's Caption This, and thanks to you all for playing along!

Ok, here's my lame attempt:

"I knew I should have taken the ring off of my husband's finger before I buried him"

Thanks for the mention of my caption from last week's contest! (Blushing!) It was an inspiring photo.

How about this for this week:

Have a great week!

'I'm sure I parked the car around here somewhere!'

You are such a great watcher of people Carmi. You always notice these people doing their various things when the rest of the world walks by.

Michele sent me by this time to say hello!

Sara said...

WOW! It was fun seeing my quote from last week mentioned...

For today's:

"It has to be here somewhere!"

craziequeen said...

'I just can't remember where I dropped my hearing aid..... [taps headphones] are these things on??'

:-)

Feeling a bit evil today, Carmi [sneeze]
