Caption This 133

Deerfield Beach, FL, January 2007

That's our youngest munchkin, Noah, tearing headlong toward the surf at the only speed he knows. I was trying to get an artsy beach umbrella perspective, and ended up, somewhat accidentally, with his sweet little form in the corner. Even when he's rendered in a tiny scale, he manages to delight anyone who sees him.

(What the hell am I talking about? Head over here for the Thematic Photographic summer extravaganza. Don't delay...fall's coming.)

Your turn: Please come up with a snappy caption for this shot. New to Caption This? Follow this yellow brick link for more info on how this insanity works.

About our last photo of my father-in-law's instrument panel: It's slowly turning into one of my favorite recent pics. There's an order to it that appeals to me. And it reminds me of how much fun I have with my family when we're running errands and doing the everyday things that everyday families do. So without further ado, our latest honorable menschens are:
  • Dana: "Idling away."
  • Melissa: "En-gauge-ing."
  • Robin: "Yes, we're there yet."
SPwriter, aka Steve Parolini, takes it with "Going nowhere fast." He's long been a supporter of Caption This.

Nice capture. I love seeing kids on the beach, they often have their time of the life there, so enthusiastic!

... mmm...

"A Beach in Lilliput"?
"Epcot Umbrella"?

I got nothin'.

(Except this: Thematic Photographic 63: "Summer" - v.6.0 "How To Fish")

Kids and puppies often seem to have two speeds: Wide Open, and Fast Asleep. My oldest was like this when he was that age too. His kid brother not quite so much. It's a marvel to behold... and remember.

Thanks, Carmi! Caption This is just the thing to jump start the creative juices. And OF COURSE Steve is the winnah--you chose my favorite one!

For now, all I've got is "Shady Proposition" :). I'll be back w/more if I know me...!


Mojo said...

Oh I LIKE Robin's entry. Very cool... of course, it would be... being "shady" and all.

Once more from the cheap seats, I close out the week with one of my favorites.

Hi Carmi

Given our summer it can only be:

"Yes darling, but the weather forecast promissed us 5 days of continual rain again"

"Horace was tasking no chances when the forecast said 30C, sunny, a very light breeze, and clear blue skies"

Ever since being a Girl Guide, Gertrude had allways been prepared for the English summer...
