London, ON, May 2008 [Click to enlarge]

This is either the aftermath of our exuberant Father's Day 2008 celebrations or the interior of a long-forgotten structure on a similarly forgotten stretch of road in my burg. Either way, it's a scene that's ripe for your caption suggestions. So I'll turn it over to you...

Your turn: Please suggest a caption for this photo. Just click the comment link below and go nuts. You may submit as many captions as you wish - I'm a sucker for multiple-submitters. Be as funny as you can - we all need a good laugh these days. I'll post a new Caption This photo next Sunday.

About last week's desolate service station photo: I think I must be going through a morose phase in my photographic life, as I keep posting sad-looking views of my world. Sorry.

Honorable menschens go to the following excellent folks:
  • Terri: "Chew on this!"
  • Awareness: "Redneck one stop shopping."
  • The Imaginary Reviewer: "While it did nothing for their lap times, the new pit lane addition was highly appreciated by all the NASCAR drivers."
  • Anne: "Got Milk?"
  • Robin: "Counter intelligence."
Creme Brulee takes it with the lovely play-on-name, "Slim Pickins." CB, aka Gord Harrison, is a columnist in none other than my local weekly paper, The Londoner, and it's a privilege to cross his path in the blogosphere as well. Please pop by his blog, It Strikes Me Funny, to share a congratulatory word or two.

One more thing: Are you looking for ways to get your photography noticed by a larger audience? Click here for this week's Thematic Photographic. You'll be glad you did. Really.

Never trust a contractor who says he'll have the work done "Thursday".

You want funny? May be hard as this reminds me of the flooding but let's see what I can come up with....

"Flood Waters = Sky High
Cleaning Prices = Astronomical
Remembering to Buy Insurance? = Priceless!"

"I thinks I saw a mouse, let me try this sledgehammer one more time."

"Nope, The Cat in the Hat ain't never coming back!"

That's kind of a sad photo really. I wonder what stories the walls could tell before they disappear for good?

Either way it looks like a bomb has gone off! So my attempt is:

"Who left the gas on?"

But I really like Laura's Reflections of what was, lost to what will be. That's a great one...

Looking forward to the next "Thematic Photographic!" Cheers!

I thought of another one:

"Er guys, the demolition order says '34 Elmwood Avenue'; we're on Elmwood Road..."

Wreckless abandon

Abandonment issues

The two that popped in my head immediately. I might add a few when I'm not so tired at the end of a long day.

Thanks, as always, Carmi. You KNOW I like to play along and appreciate the menschens :).
