About this photo: It's a week of signs here at Written Inc. If you want in on the Thematic Photographic goodness, click here.Grocery stores have always been happy places to take my camera (see here, here and here for earlier examples.) I'm not sure if it's the subject matter as much as it is the subversiveness of it all. The risk of getting caught adds a certain edge to the process: Compose in your mind, prep settings, compose and shoot before a store employee sees you. It all happens so quickly that you don't have much opportunity to second guess yourself.
And if you do get caught, make sure you have a funny excuse. Talking your way out of being ejected from the store only adds to the experience.
Your turn: Please suggest a caption for this image. Click on the comment link and go to town - multiple entries welcome. I'll post the winner next Sunday. If you're new to Caption This, please click here for more background. Oh, and while you're at it, what should I shoot the next time I'm at the grocery store? More importantly, will any of you bail me out if I get caught?
About last week's photo of a sweet old lady walking her dog: I wish every moment could be as genteel as this one. I wasn't the only one. Honorable menschens go to the following good folks:
- Dana: "Made for each other."
- Sara: "Kindred spirits."
- Jean: "Where do you want to go today?"
