London, ON, February 2009

About this photo: Thematic Photographic has gone edible this week. Although this particular photo may not ostensibly qualify, feel free to head over here if you're feeling particularly hungry.
This spontaneously witnessed biology experiment almost certainly goes down as one of the more icky scenes I've come across at the grocery store. To protect the guilty, I won't come out and identify said store, but anyone with a bit of research chops should be able to narrow it down based on the clues in the pic.

Your turn: Please come up with a snappy caption for this photo. You can be as funny - or gross - as you wish. As ever, you may enter as many times as your poor keyboard can handle. The only stipulation? Have fun with it. For more background on how Caption This works, click here.

About last week's photo of a gentleman browsing at an old McGill Ghetto bookstore: This is one of my favorite photos from that morning's walkabout. You never know what you'll find when you head out with a camera in your hand. It's that sense of not knowing, of potential, that makes finds like this so satisfying. I'm glad so many of you had fun with it!

Our honorable menschens include the following fine folks:
  • Craziequeen: 'Yay! I finally found the Little Shop Around the Corner!'
  • Robin: "Pondering."
  • Terri: "Little Bookshop of Horrors."
  • Mojo: "Are you absolutely sure this is how it worked in You've Got Mail?"
  • Robin Pensieve: "Judging a book by its cover."
  • PastorMac's Ann: "Choosing his words carefully."
Jean's "In search of lost time" wins the virtual prize this week. There was something timeless about this dusty old store, and her caption captures that feeling quite nicely. Jean is a Bangalore native whose perspectives on life in India - in both words and images - will change forever how you view this incredible place. I hope you'll drop by her blog and send her a happy or two.
