I find it somewhat amazing how a substance that can be so noxious on one level can be so frighteningly beautiful on another.
Your turn: Please come up with a compelling caption for this image and share it in a comment. Feel free to repeat the process as often as you feel inspired. I'll announce the winner next Sunday.
About last week's photo of the smokey smokestack: Hmm, now that I think of it, I seem to be stuck on an environmental kick. I'm not sure why. Honorable menschens go to:
- Catheroo: Smoking kills...the earth.
- Robin: Where there's smoke, there's mire.
- Judy: We all need to blow off steam now and then!
- MissMeliss: Steamed.
- Carolyn: Pipe dreams
- Awareness: Crime of the century.
- Terri: Smoking gun.
"Study In Oil"
(It looks like oil on a water puddle to me.)
it looks like someone took the rainbow out of the sky and smashed it on the ground... so 'smashed rainbow' or something like that.. or maybe 'fallen rainbow'.. i don't know... feel free to move my idea around and make a comment.. i'm not quite getting it out of my head yet!

Somewhere over the rainbow...
(Thanks for the mention, Carmi...with only one submission last week (I couldn't come up with ANYTHING I liked better than the one I submitted...) I thought I might've fallen through the cracks, since I'm usually so prolific.... I have a feeling I'll be back this week...just a quick check in for now).
OOooo! And WAHOOO for Alix's win! Loved her submission and glad to see another buddy of mine cashing in ;).
Thanks for the mention, Carmi!
Pretty slick photography.
P.S. Thank you for the mention!
I have always loved the rainbow colours oil makes on water, even though it is so nasty...I'm not being inspired on a caption front but wanted to drop in and say hi :)
Also, I'm passing an "excellent blog" award on to you. :)
To me it looks like a wild fire.
So my caption would be " blazin"

Congrats Alix. And thanks for the menshun, :)
On this one I'll say:
"Mother Earth in Grateful Dead concert attire"
"Grounded Rainbow" came to mind first...
"Toxic Rainbow" was next...
"No pot o' gold... just asphalt" is my lame last try.
Have a great week!
Thank you! I'm glad you liked it. I love your site and have been lurking for a while now but that was my first comment. I'll be back later with a caption.
