Caption This!

Please click the above photo to see a larger version!

"To me, photography is an art of observation. It's about finding something interesting un a ordinary place... I've found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them."

-Elliott Erwit

I thought it might be fun have a little change of pace. How about we play a contest of, "Caption This!" I found the above scene, just yesterday, while out in my travels around town. I thought it was a pretty unique scene, but I have no idea what to title the photo. It was taken right at midday, and the sun was really being unkind, so I will probably go back and do another photo in more cooperative lighting sometime this next week, but for now, what would you caption this scene? Leave me your guess in this comment thread for this entry, and feel free to comment as many times as you like, but please make each guess a separate comment. :) The winner will receive one of my original photos. The game is open until Sunday night at midnight, eastern time. Good Luck. :)

That is just scary. I thought I'd be able to come up with something, but I can't.

"This isn't the San Dimas Circle K!" lol yeah. That looks like the time travel machine from Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure.

"Artists! Can't live with them and definitely can't live next door to them."

Okay. I'm done. That just looks so bizarre that I feel like I could go on for days. Ha!

"Garden Globe, Berkeley style"

If you visit your own Home Depot garden center, you will find garden globes, clay bunnies, copper butterflies.

This is what is being sold at Berkeley's Home Depot garden center. They've already moved 23 of them.

"Outhouse"

"Yeah, you can use our bathroom in the back yard. Just don't light a match. Wait, it looks like it may be occupied... 'Hey!' Oh, that darn exhibitionist neighbor boy is in there again..."

"NASA today shocked the world by confirming the Moon landing was faked after this previously unpublished photo was discovered in the private archive of Neil Armstrong. Seen here is the lunar module as Armstrong is set to take his historic 'first steps' on the moon."

"...yes... that's what I said. My flying telephone booth ran out of power, and I just cra— ...huh? I dunno, maybe the ceiling-fan-propeller broke, or the milk crate ran dry... Of course I checked the four nerf rockets! You're not listening! Do I look stupid to you? ...Huh? ...I can't tell from here, because I am stuck inside... ...I can't step outside—I told you there are flamingos everywhere! JUST GET ME OUTTA HERE! I am begging you!"

Hi Carly !!!!! How about this for a title....

"Getting Ready For Take-Off" this looks something like a space shuttle. How about that title ? I think that would make for a great title. I like it.

Oh sure, but later you mention the exhibitionist neighbor boy like nobody's business...

I can't top the ones others people have done. These are great! Um....

Dalek-controlled flamingos spy on the Doctor's new back-up TARDIS, which has been hijacked by an Anne Geddes Auton.
