Send me a photo caption!

I am doing an experiment to foster creativity in myself and the readers of this blog. That means you!

Please send me a photo caption – for a photo that doesn’t yet exist. It can be anything – a person, place or thing, or something more ethereal. It can be abstract or specific, leading or obscure. For example:

– “The Silliest Kid in the World”
– “Adventure Walk”
– “Looking for Transformation”
– “Awakening Delight”

Post your caption to the wall of the Sarah Sloboda Photography facebook page. I will select the captions that most inspire me, and try to capture the essence of your caption. You can keep up with this experiment on the Sarah Sloboda Photography facebook page – and if you’re not already, be sure you’re currently a fan.
