Captioning The Absurd

While doing some street/flâneur photography in downtown Salt Lake City on Wednesday, I came across one of those scenes a fan of street photography lives for: the random public display of the unusual and/or absurd. Sometimes you come across these things, and it’s really obvious what they are about – and thus how they could be or will be titled or captioned. But occasionally, you just can’t put the pieces together in a way that tells a plausible story, so you ditch the plausible and let your imagination take a carefree romp in an arena probably better suited to Tim Burton or David Lynch.

I thought it would be fun to enlist your aid in coming up with a caption for the photograph that resulted from Wednesday’s find. Please leave your suggestion in the Comments area below. You will receive an email voucher for a free handmade, 100% cotton photo greeting card of your choosing from my online shop if I really like what you come up with.

“…the concept of absurdity is something I’m attracted to.”
David Lynch

I'm with you, David.
