Caption Contest!

You know how, occasionally, you look at a picture and think to yourself, “Wow, this is such a striking [pose/portrait/what-have-you]—wouldn’t it be great if it had a snappy caption that really summed up the emotion or humor inherent in it?” And you know how you usually conclude that thought with, “Oh well; can’t think of something right now”—? Well, that’s how I feel.

That’s right: sometimes I get tired of writing things to accompany my photos—so I’ve decided you can do it instead!

Here’s the deal: Below are a number of photos (I’ve even numbered them). You pick the photo that most inspires you and write a caption for it. Once submissions are in, I’ll select some of my favorite entries and then let the good readers of this blog vote to decide the Very Best Caption. The winner gets, of course, glory and adulation—and also a travel mug with a Beasts in a Populous City photo on it! (Here’s an example at my Zazzle site; the winner may request either a pre-made mug or one with a design of his/her choosing. The losers can buy one for themselves and then claim that they won it.)

INSTRUCTIONS: Don’t put your submissions in the comments! To submit a caption, send an email to with: 1. The subject line “Caption Contest”; 2. The number of the photo associated with your caption (no need to try to copy the image); 3. The caption; 4. Your name. The contest is open until the end of April. Each person may submit no more than three (3) captions total—and only one per image.

Have fun!
