Shanghai, China, May 2007

I'm guessing that Mothers Against Drunk Driving hasn't set up shop in China, yet. Something tells me they'd frown on advertising this blatant.

Your turn: Got a caption for this scene? Share it in a comment and win not-so-valuable prizes. Okay, you won't win any prizes. But you'll make everyone who visits this site happy. Isn't that reward enough?

About last week's image of streaks of light on a foggy night: I'm still eating crow for posting it late, so allow me to thank you all for still participating despite my being at least two days late in getting it uploaded. You're all very kind.

The image struck me as particularly poignant when I shot it. There's something about fog that changes the way I relate to the world around me. It softens my immediate surroundings. I slow myself down as I try to remember what this very temporary environment feels like. It forces everyone to become conscious of their surroundings, to become hyper-aware, to stop rushing to wherever they were going. In short, it messes up with our usual sense of time and place.

Which is why Superchai's quote felt so appropriate: "Standing still while time passes by." Please visit her blog (click here) and congratulate her for being so creative.

As usual, my comments overflowed with solid submissions, including these honorable mentions:
  • Joan: "Stop that train, Superman!"
  • Linda: "To Infinity and BEYOND!"
  • Dan: "Too fast to focus"
  • Sara: "Supersonic"
  • Ginny: "Time Traveler"
  • jc: "Road Runner blows by Wile E. Coyote yet again"
Hope you enjoy this as much as I do!

1. Lost in Translation?
2. The directions say 'exit before scotch' (hic), not after.

I haven't a clue what to caption this picture,!

To answer your question: YES! It was really simple and aka_monty gave me the answer! "REFRESH". It helped that others could see what I had added, and told me the comments were she suggested that I refresh MY stuff, and then everything got upadtad, Thank You Very Much!

Hope things ease up for you Carmi...Even though you are terribly busy and rather stressed, I see your name over at Michele's and other places, too...So I am glad you haven't been soooo busy that you haven't been able to blog at all....!
