With a nod to Open Salon’s slogan “You make the headlines,” on my page,
You Make the Captions!
Last month, we had a lot of fun with CoyoteOldStyle’s April’s End Photo Caption Contest. Today I’m offering for your captioning pleasure some new “interesting” images. Reminding you once again that you must bear in mind the gravitas of the ancient Chinese curse, “May you live in interesting times,” I present you budding photo weenies with the latest new and improved incarnation of CoyoteOldStyle’s “Mother-May-I Photo?” Caption Contest.
Write some creative, pithy, thought-provoking, silly, happy, sad or descriptive captions and indicate which photo they are for. The ever-popular panel of august judges are back from
rehab another weighty assignment and will be adjudicating the winners. Because of the Monday Memorial Day holiday, I will update this page with the winning captions on Wednesday. Have at it and have fun!
