Caption Contest Oct 4 -Oct 12
Posted By: crewl1, 10-04-2014, 05:19 PM

Hello again folks, hope this shot gets your creative juices flowing.
This was taken on a street photo session in Los Angeles' Fashion District.
Tell your friends to join in!

Submissions can be in any written form (no video or audio files) — caption, limerick, motivational, poem or prose — whatever inspires you to describe the photo or catch attention.
Contestants may submit more than one entry but it must be in a separate post.

Important: whether you submit an entry or not, please “like” any posts you feel deserve it as this is how the winner is chosen!

The Thread Starter is the moderator and must post an original photo at the start of the thread. Enter often, vote more often, and this time vote as soon as you find something you like. This contest has gotten sleepier than my image, so time to shake things up again.

In case of a tie the moderator will choose one to break the tie. The winner of that contest will be notified by PM by the current Thread Starter/Contest Host and will become responsible for posting the next original work to be captioned.

"Confusing diffusion"
Thought bubbles above 4 main subjects - left to right:
Person 1 ("Hustle for muscle"): What are you staring at - are you looking for a knuckle sandwich?
Person 2: Cool its a yellow camera!
Person 3: Ever since speech class I can't help practising and I think I have found a subject
Person 4: Come on Fred - you don't want to get arrested again

The stench was overpowering except for Jose who could only smell the roses.

Thanks! Downtown LA is a strange place indeed, lots of weird things to see.

Downtown La at night is especially intense....its been some time since I was there, but doing a shoot, around the homeless and the carboard bow camping...would be a fertile shoot,...the thing about your capture here though is how you found this moment in the chaos....it seems like all the randomness is somehow connected....good eye

You should post some more of your street photos..I am curious...do you have them up somewhere?
