San Francisco, CA, July 2008 [Click to enlarge]
Quick note: This photo continues this week's Thematic Photographic theme, patterns. Please click here if you'd like to participate.I'd like to share another image from my recent trip to San Fran. This one was taken from my hotel room window. I felt as if I was watching a little mini-play play out as this couple slowly came together from opposite sides of the square. I guess this makes me a bit of a voyeur.
But what would you call this photo? Stick with me...
Your turn: Please suggest a caption or a title for this photo. Use your imagination - the weirder, the better - and feel free to submit as many as you wish. I encourage promiscuous captioners!
About last week's photo of a homeless gentleman: I felt an immense sadness as soon as I took this photo. I could capture a scene with my lens, but I was powerless to actually do anything about it. Such is the limit of photography, I guess. So many of you shared very poignant captions, including these Honorable Menschens:
- Barbie2be: "Trying to get by."
- Judy: "No vehicles, and not much future."
- Canadian Mark: "This looks like the bottom, it's all up from here."
- Steve: "Broken-carted" and "Remains of the day."
- Gordon: "Love me for who I am, not what you'd like me to be."
- Terri: "Survivor: San Francisco."
- Jacie: "Grace under pressure."
At first glance I had two things go through my mind: abstract piano keyboard and the flashing lights on the side of a spaceship. This is not to say I have seen a spaceship! Actually, the one in the movie "Close Encounters of the Third Kind". And with the couple together on the bench, I call this one "Close Encounters".
Long distance relationship.
A trip of a thousand miles is forgotten in a kiss.
The beginning of happily ever after.
"Cue the rain."
Held in a moment.
In my dreams...
[Okay, that last one was just for me. Thanks for the menschens, Carmi.]
"You say Potato and I say Potatto!" :D)
Have a great week, Carmi!
"So close, and yet so far"
"I didn't realise this was what you meant when you said you'd see me in 'ell...."
"Of all the gin joints in all the world..."
"Here's lookin' at you."
"When Harry met Sally."
"The benchmark of their affair."
(You had to expect that one.)
The vacuum of space...
Meeting on the Square(s)
This photo is lovely. Seems like it should be an artsy addition to someone's engagement photos or something.
There are so many different things that could be going on here it's difficult to know which path to go down. The body language is pretty intimate, but it's robbed of context by the distance. What's actually being said here?
"Love what you've done with the place!"
"Good news! My test results are back."
"Amazing... a man who actually asks for directions."
"That party was tonight wasn't it?"
"What was your name again?"
"That'll cost you an extra hundred."
(Hey, this is San Francisco, hai na?)
With apologies to Dave Grohl and The Foo Fighters...
"We'll live happily ever trapped if you just save my life"
(Borrowed from "Learn to Fly")
And a personal favorite lyric (you don't have to get it).
"Dheere dheere ban jaaye na koi kahani"
(Stories are created on such nights)
And from the same film,
"If the ending isn't happy, then the movie isn't over yet."
(The last two borrowed from Farah Khan's Om Shanti Om)
"What's a rabbit got to do with it?"
love, love , love this shot!!!!
as for caption, all i can think of is the song "baby, can i hold you tonight". Trite, i know..but that's all i can think of right now.......:)
Hey Carmi. Why you've made my week! thank you for the wonderful comments and the WIN!! oooo weeee!
As for this week's? I see them saying goodbye after a night of secret passion.
Holding onto the present for one more moment.
Sad surrendering at Dawn's Honesty
A Long Goodbye
"Nothing is ever 'Black & White', but love is always shades of Grey"
I get this as almost all of the pavinging is differing shades of Grey, which is much the same as love... We 'love' some types of food; we Love to go to places, and we Love our family. All signs of Love, but all have a differnt meaning (of sorts), thus the 'Shades of Grey'!
Tetris on a larger scale
If there was a mike under the bench this is what I'd like to hear if i was in the mood for romance or drama:
"You missed the last train."
"I'll only be gone a year."
"No. I said, you bring the Guinness and I'll bring the glasses."
"What? That wasn't me."
cheers to all,
I don't have a suggestion... but thank you for sharing this pic. It put a smile on my face. I really needed that. :)
