Beautiful Two-Lips

 

Nikon D300, ISO 200, f4, 1/1000th

There are tulips in the garden,
There are tulips in the park,
But none is more beautiful
Than two lips meeting in the dark.

Rescued From Corruption

 

“Photography does not create eternity, as art does; it embalms time, rescuing it simply from its proper corruption.”
– André Bazin (1918–1958), French film critic

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.
